FRANKFORT, Ky. -- A Kentucky lawmaker says she accidentally fired her gun in her office in the Capitol Annex. Democratic Rep. Leslie Combs of Pikeville said Wednesday that no one was hurt or in harm's way when the gun went off Tuesday -- the opening day of the legislative session. Combs said in a statement that the incident was investigated by the state police's legislative detail. She says state police found no evidence to indicate any portion of the round went outside her office. Combs says she obtained her concealed-carry permit several years ago.
