A Carter Lake police officer was shot and wounded on Wednesday afternoon at police headquarters. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says the unidentified officer is now hospitalized.
Sheriff Danker says it’s a non-life-threatening injury and he’ll likely be in the hospital a few days. The officer was taken to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha by squad car. Danker says the shooting is being called an accident and one service weapon was fired.
He says it was not a training exercise but an "accidental discharge" of the firearm. Reports indicate the officer was shot in the torso.
