    Odd, bullets usually don't fly out of nowhere but yet the story doesn't say who did the shooting. How much you wanna bet one of them shot the other.

    I'm wondering if these two incidents are even related or if they both just happened to occur at the same place around the same time....

    A common practice for experienced shooters & the noobs who are in training is rapid weapon deployment drills. I bet these guys were drawing their weapons and engaging targets starting from a low threat level. When your head gets too big for the caliber you're working with these things are common to any shooter. I can only imagine the look on the wounded's face towards the shooter. LMAO

    That is unfortunate. I hope that the officer that was shot does not suffer a permanent disability.

    Almost spit my drink out.

    And saabin,I'll take that bet.One of them probably shot himself.

    And orge,me also.I don't want the tax payers to pay for his stupidity.Otherwise I don't care,maybe he isn't cut out for a cop.

    If you are going to take a job that requires you to carry a gun,you just can't afford mistakes

    Same goes for us when we carry.
    Can't call the bullet back

    When I heard shooting accident in Auburn on the news i was seriously concerned. A bit later they showed and told it was the cop training range. Cops, accidental shooting -yeah Right.

    i will venture a guess that the news Saturday will go like this:
    "Police officers injured when gun accidental discharges"

    Two cops were injured:
    1 shot in leg
    1 shot, a slight wound to the gut right below bottom of body armour.

    Stupid is, is Stupid does.

    BTW - Never call a cop a PIG. Pigs are smarter then that.

    This sounds like a case of "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes".

    Yeah, it looks fine until you actually submit your post. Glad I could help.
