5 p.m. Saturday evening, 3400 South Wentworth Avenue, Tiara Paul, 20, was stopped by two police officers for a misdemeanour until a name check revealed she had two warrants for her arrest. Now, sitting in the back of the patrol car as they waited for a female officer to arrive, she pulled the loaded 25-calibre handgun from her jeans’ waistband. Thinking. Was the safety on? She wasn’t sure. The handcuffs digging into her wrists restricted her movement and she couldn’t quite see the 25-calibre. It felt like it was on. She pulled the trigger to test it out.
