Gun That Shoots Round Corners

Corner ShotIt looks and fires like something out of Star Wars, but the latest weapon that Akron Police have in their arsenal certainly appears to be from a galaxy far, far away.

It's called "Corner Shot", and it allows officers to load their sidearm into an expandable arm that extends around a corner. Using a video monitor to see that target, the officer can fire a round at a 90-degree angle while staying protected behind cover.

"Expose a weapon, expose a lethal threat, without exposing any part of your body," said Capt. Mike Shearer. "So it's looks like a very nice weapon."
