LRPD: undercover officer accidentally shot in the leg

Posted By on Wed, Apr 1, 2015 at 1:06 PM

A statement released just after noon by Little Rock Police Department spokesman Lt. Sidney Allen says that an undercover officer with the LRPD sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg today at around 11:20 a.m. Allen said the officer, whose name and gender was not specified, was exiting a car when their weapon discharged, with the bullet nicking the officer's leg but not causing serious injury.

"The bullet grazed their leg, but did not penetrate the skin," Allen said.

A suspect the officer was dealing with at the time was not injured, and was taken into custody by other officers on the scene. The injured officer, Allen said, is being treated at a local hospital, and an investigation into the shooting is underway.
