william kern used his own gun instead of a special training gun. next week, kern's attorney is going to try to prove that he was supposed to carry a gun. the training gun and the real weapon are roughly the same size weight and measurement. the only difference is that the grip of the training weapon is blue. any individual gripping a training device in the same fashion as they would grip a live weapon would not see the entirety of the blue grip. the effective muscle memory and recall of an officer of 17 years would cause that officer to engage in the same mechanics of withdrawing, aiming and firing a training device as they would a live weapon. eyewitness news found though other police departments used training weapons entirely colored blue to avoid any
confusion. >> william kern is charged with second degree assault and reckless endangerment. both are misdemeanors. meantime the recruit who was shot is out of the hospital. his family has filed a civil suit against kern and the city. >> thank you, mary. >> the training academy was shut down for several weeks during the investigation. it is now back open under a new commander. it's been more than three years since cocky sville native was murdered by her boyfriend at the university of virginia. now as athletes prepare for the running festival. a team called every yard for yeardley will be running in her honor raising awareness to combat violence. >> training for a half marathon has been challenging for lexi love. in 2001 her sister yeardley was beaten and left to die by her
