Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who shot club patron while break dancing turns himself in

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who shot club patron while break dancing turns himself in

He is being held in Downtown Detention Center in Denver. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.

Cellphone video of the incident that has since gone viral on social media shows Bishop dancing on a dance floor in the crowded bar when he suddenly did a backflip. He jumps up, arching his back and swinging his arms above his head. Bishop then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

Bishop pounced on the weapon but accidentally squeezed off a single round.

Authorities did not initially identify the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent because he was not arrested at the time, Denver police community resource officer Marika Putnam said. This agent also said that if there are aggravating circumstances to the accidental discharge, the discipline could be more severe, up to termination. Schepman said he can't say whether the agent had been drinking that night.

Multiple sources told 9Wants to Know that Bishop is not assigned to the Denver office and works out of Washington D.C.

The FBI declined comment Tuesday "in order to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation", spokeswoman Amy Sanders said.

"We are filing this charge now rather than waiting until the [blood alcohol content] report is received, which we understand could take another week, because sufficient evidence has been presented to file it", Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said in the statement.

Thomas Reddington, 24, who was hit by the bullet in the leg, told "Good Morning America" on Thursday that he was still confused by the incident. "Then I looked down at my leg and see some brown residue".

In a statement posted on Facebook two days after the incident, Mile High Spirits bar said one of its "innocent patrons was shot" because of the agent's "misconduct". The firearm went off when he picked it up, and another customer suffered a serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower leg.
