Posted October 15, 2013
Fayetteville, N.C. — One year after he was nearly killed in an accidental shooting, a major with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office died in his sleep overnight Tuesday, Sheriff Moose Butler said.
Maj. John McRainey, 60, was on leave after being injured when his service revolver accidentally discharged on Oct. 31, 2012.
He was hospitalized for more than four months for serious injuries to his intestines and kidneys.
It wasn't clear whether those injuries were related to his death.
His funeral will likely be Friday, the sheriff's office said.
