One person shot at Edmond gun range
An accidental shooting puts an FBI agent in the hospital. It happened at the Edmond Police Department's Training Facility. Fox 25's Kisha Henry was there as investigators arrived on scene.
"There was an accidental shooting involving one of the agents," says Rick Rains, FBI spokesperson. He says it happened around three o'clock, Thusday afternoon. "FBI agents were involved in a live-fire training exercise," says Rains.
The agent, whose name is not yet being released, was shot in the leg. "He was administered aid on scene by our own EMT's who were part of the training exercise," says Rains.
The agent was medevaced to OU Medical Center, where he's expected to be ok. FBI officials will not say if the agent accidentally shot himself, or if the wound was caused by another agent, but they say the shooting was definitely accidental. "We are going to conduct a shooting investigation as we always do," says Rains.
"Currently, right now, the Edmond Police Dept. is holding a police academy," says Officer James Hamm, with the Edmond Police Department. He says Edmond officers were in the classroom studying, and were in no way connected to the accident. He says it's common for other agencies to use their training grounds. "They go through traffic stop practices, responding to calls; every aspect of law enforcement, they get trained here to do," says Officer Hamm.
Edmond officials do not recall any similar accident taking place at the gun range, and they say they hope not to have any more.
"It's a risk that's always involved when you're in live-fire situations. We certainly always try to use our best safety, but it was just an accident," says Rains.
