CNN- An off duty Ohio police officer accidentally shot himself in an elevator and it was all caught on camera. Erlanger Police Officer Darryl Jouett entered an elevator with his wife after leaving dinner Saturday night. The officer pulled his gun from his holster, checked the weapon, and appeared to be trying to put it in his pocket when it went off.

The bullet ricocheted off the elevator door and hit officer Jouett in the stomach. His wife got out her phone and called for help.

Jouett was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
