Former Tampa Police Officer Alleging Weapon Fired by Itself, Causing Serious Injuries


A veteran Tampa police officer has filed a lawsuit Tuesday against firearms manufacturer Sig Sauer.

He alleges his service weapon, a Sig Sauer P320 handgun, fired by itself, seriously injuring him.

“It resembles many, many other prior incidents that have happened across the country,” said Attorney Nick Gurney, who is part of the legal team representing Northrop in his lawsuit.

The complaint says Northrop is suing Sig Sauer, “for the design, manufacture, sale, distribution and inadequate warnings relating to an unreasonably dangerous and defective firearm.”

“It’s a gun that goes off when the trigger is not pulled. And it’s essentially as simple as that,” Gurney said.
