“Gun goes off at Indian Point power plant”

BUCHANAN – A security guard at the Indian Point nuclear power facility has been suspended after his gun went off while inside the plant.

Officials say there was no damage to the plant in the Saturday mishap, and no one was injured. It appears the guard pulled the gun from its holster when it went off.

Entergy, the company that owns the facility, is calling the matter an accident, but it has launched a full investigation into how this happen. The nuclear regulatory commission has joined in the investigation.

Indian Point union workers are currently negotiating a new contract and have threatened to strike. The talks are on hold until Wednesday at the request of a federal mediator.
