A Homeland Security officer and another man were injured inside a Doral restaurant after an accidental shooting Sunday night. The shooting occurred at Nahuén Gourmet Market, an Argentinian restaurant located at 10375 NW 41st St., at around 8 p.m. The officer was eating dinner with another man when he stood up and his gun fell to the floor, Doral Police spokesperson Rey Valdes said. Moments later, a shot rang out — striking the officer in the thigh and then hitting the man in the ankle. The gun wasn't in the officer's holster, Valdes said.
