L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF SHOOTS SELF IN LEG

A sheriff deputy in Los Angeles County was serving a search warrant in South El Monte on Thursday morning when he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

At 5 a.m., a few deputies from the narcotics bureau had to serve a warrant in the 11200 block of Broadmead Street in South El Monte.
After they entered the house, the deputy’s gun accidentally discharged, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide detectives responded to the scene to investigate the shooting where a deputy was injured when they discovered that he unintentionally fired his own weapon and injured his lower leg, a press release said.

The shot grazed his leg and he was transported to a local hospital with non–life threatening injuries.
No one else was injured and the cause of the accidental shot is still unknown at this time, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office.
