By Emile Hallez

A Denver police officer shot himself in the hand Tuesday morning while examining a gun in the bathroom of his South Jeffco home, in an apparent accident.

Detective Bret Starnes, a 12-year veteran of the Denver department, had been firing a Smith & Wesson 9mm at a shooting range earlier in the day. That gun malfunctioned, Starnes said in a Jeffco sheriff’s report, and he returned to his home in the 13000 block of West Arlington Place to pick up a replacement pistol from his gun safe.
