Following a day of training, SWAT team officers were cleaning their weapons at the Huntington Beach police station around 10 p.m. Wednesday when an officer's revolver fired.
The round struck the floor and ricocheted, striking the leg of a colleague, according to police spokesmen. The unidentified shooting victim was rushed to UCI Medical Center in Orange, where he underwent surgery this morning.
His injury is not life-threatening, according to his agency.
As this is technically an officer-involved shooting, the incident will be investigated by the Orange County Sheriff's Department, as is routine.
