"If you put your finger on the trigger and you pull the trigger, it is going to go off," said Capt. Matt Culbreath, of the Clemson Police Department.
Thank you officer, for pointing out the blindingly obvious. If you put your finger on the trigger and pull its going to go off. Geez, who would have guessed that? Of course, if you know the rules of safe gun handling I have to wonder what your finger is doing on the trigger unless you're ready to fire.

Both departments have had Glocks go off accidentally previously.
No the guns didn't just "go off accidentally" unless there was some sort of manufacturing defect in the gun. More likely, a negligent or careless officer accidentally fired their weapon. The weapon didn't accidantally discharge, someone accidentally discharged their weapon. Big difference.
