(Continued)

LAWRENCE, Mass. —

Police woke up the residents at 82 Crescent and made sure no one was harmed.

“The firearm likely discharged when K-9 Ivan contacted the trigger while trying to narrow his search,” Hart wrote.

Officer Christopher Bussey then cleared the pistol and made sure it safe.

“I did not know if there was something wrong with the firearm at that time and did not want to risk another discharge,” Hart wrote. Bussey “also removed a bullet casing from the chamber that failed to eject when discharged while buried in the snow.”
