FARGO, N.D. – Officials say a North Dakota State University campus police officer is on medical leave after he accidentally shot himself in the arm.
KFGO radio reports that the shooting happened a week ago at the officer's apartment. The officer was not on duty at the time.
Campus police say they are reviewing the accident and will decide whether to take disciplinary action. The injury is not considered serious.
Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel says the incident is "concerning" because there's been a rash of accidental shootings in the area in the last month. He says the common thread has been human error.
