Alberta’s police watchdog says a Lethbridge police officer is stable in hospital after being injured when another officer fired a gun in a training accident.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) says officers were training in a room at a gun range on Tuesday when an officer fired a round into a table.
The agency says a piece of the table struck a 35-year-old officer in his left leg.
The fired round was recovered from the wall.
The officer’s injury was serious, but non-life-threatening.
