DENVER — Denver's police chief is considering extra training and a review of department policies after the second accidental shooting by an officer this month and the fifth in a little over a year.

At least two of the accidental shootings have been blamed on gun-mounted tactical flashlights. Such lights have also been cited in other accidental police shootings across the country.

The Denver Post reports (http://tinyurl.com/pqby7uo ) Police Chief Robert White is reviewing the use of all such flashlights and may require officers who use them to undergo added training. He has already banned officers from using one design of such flashlights.
