I call this mysterious because I don't know how the gun just woke up and decided to fire while holstered.
-Didn't say he touched it, just that he was talking and it fired inside the holster. Maybe it jiggled loose a bit and he rested his arm on it causing it to fire. But what mysterious action caused it to go off on its own?
-The other mystery? The response that these they can happen from time to time while cleaning. Makes it sound like a normal thing.
Would like to know what he was carrying, might explain a lot. But I don't like how the statements elude to this being an inherent by product of carrying a handgun.

Very well could have been a Glock in a Serpa. We all know about Glocks and Serpas. I found UT PD policy for weapons and they do carry Glocks in either Safariland II/III or Serpa Level III. Granted, this was from 2011 so unknown if it's been updated due to the increase of issues with Serpas.
