FBI Agent To Face Charges In Shooting At LoDo Nightclub

FBI agent who accidentally shot bar patron after dropping his gun while dancing charged with assault

Bishop has been charged with assault and additional charges might be filed.

Chase Bishop turned himself in to police and was charged with one count of second-degree assault, according to a statement from the District Attorney's office. Denver police said last week that the agent could face possible charges pending the results of lab testing to determine if alcohol was a factor.

The video shows the off-duty agent reaching for the gun and allegedly accidentally firing the weapon, hitting another patron in the leg.

The Denver Police Department responded to Mile High Spirits Distillery at 2201 Lawrence St. on the morning of June 2. During the flip, his gun falls out of his trousers and when Bishop picks it up, the gun fires. While backflipping, a gun fell from his waistband and, upon Bishop picking up the gun, it fired.


The FBI declined to comment on the matter on Tuesday (local time) "in order to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation", spokeswoman Amy Sanders said. That bullet struck a man in the leg, leaving him with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

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

The injured 24-year-old appeared on Good Morning America, when he told reporters it he didn't realise he'd been shot until he saw blood running down his leg.

"It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules", the bar said. "The whole team at Mile High Spirits is praying for the victim's quick recovery, and he's welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever".
