FORT WAYNE, Ind.–A gun went off by accident during a training exercise for the Fort Wayne Police Department injuring two officers. 

It happened at an indoor gun range Tuesday afternoon. 

“At the conclusion of a training exercise, there was an inadvertent discharge of an officer’s weapon that struck the officer as well as striking another officer,” said Fort Wayne Police Department Spokesman Mark Bieker. 

WPTA reports that the bullet hit one officer in the hand and hit the officer in either the leg or foot. 

“They were both transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” Bieker said. 

A team from the department’s internal affairs unit is trying to figure out how the gun went off.
