An FBI agent performed a backflip at a busy nightclub – only for his gun to fall out of his pocket and discharge when he rushed to pick it up, shooting a victim in the leg.
The officer was dancing at Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar in Denver when the incident took place.
As he flips, the gun can be seen falling out of his trousers and hitting the floor.
He urgently goes to pick it up, but the crowd then screams as he accidentally fires a bullet.
A man was taken to hospital with a wounded leg, and an investigation into the incident is taking place.
