Authorities say an Albuquerque police officer is recovering after another officer accidentally shot him when the fellow officer bumped into a wall.
Albuquerque police said the officer was shot Monday evening during an investigation into a possible gunman on the roof of a business.
Albuquerque police spokesman Robert Gibbs says when officers arrived to the scene they found people playing with a BB gun.
But as officers later searched the area, police say one officer bumped up against a wall and accidentally fired a shot, hitting another officer in the calf.
The officer was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital with a non-life-threatening injury. The injured officer is expected to make a full recovery.
Names of the officers were not released.
