(WDAY TV) - Richland County Sheriff's Office is taking some of its guns away from officers. The weapons have been deemed unsafe.

A test of the handguns came after a deputy's gun accidentally discharged in December during an arrest at this home near Dwight. The Sheriff says 3 of their handguns could be faulty, after discovering a mechanical problem.

A master armorer will further examine the weapons.
