ALBANY, GA (WALB) -An Albany 911 dispatcher accidentally shot herself while sitting in a drive-thru line.

While in the Taco Bell drive-through at lunch Thursday, 28 year old Jeanita Fulmore reached inside the console of her car to get money, picked up her .9 millimeter luger and it discharged. The bullet hit her left thigh.

Fulmore drove herself to Phoebe Putney Hospital and called Police.

Investigators confiscated her gun.

She was treated for her injuries and released.

Fulmore's been a dispatcher at 911 for 2 and a half years.
