Seems like M&Ps come with trigger safeties, but can also have a thumb safety?
Regardless, the holster shown in the OP's referenced article shows the trigger to be conered while in the holster. Plus, there's a retaining strap.
So, maybe the LEO was going for his gun, and did the ol' bonehead finger-on-the-trigger draw, in which case, they're being cagey in that perhaps the gun was still kind of in the holster when it discharged.
Or the combative, non-compliant child went for his gun.
If this gets any more public attention/outcry, I predict the latter argument.
