A 39-year-old parent of a high school student is expected to face a third-degree felony charge after a gun went off at Roo Stadium Thursday night.
The accidental discharge occurred around 9 p.m. at the end of the Meet the Roos event at the Ninth Grade Center campus.
No injuries or property damage resulted from the incident, according to Weatherford police.
Witnesses in section G reported hearing a gunshot and then seeing a man retrieve a pistol possibly off the ground, put it in his pocket and hurriedly leave the area, according to Weatherford Police CID Sgt. John Rudolph.
The man had no intention of harming anyone and it is believed to be an accident that occurred when the man put his hand in his pocket, according to Rudolph.
The man did have a concealed carry license, Rudolph said.
He gets extra bravery points for slinking home with his tail tucked between his legs and waiting for the police to ID him. I wonder if they taught him that in concealed-carry class>
