FBI agent unintentionally shot during training exercise

An FBI agent was unintentionally shot last week while training at an Edmond Police Department facility in Oklahoma. According to an FBI spokesperson, Thursday afternoon FBI agents were involved in a live fire tactical training exercise when the accident occurred.
The agent was shot in the leg. He was treated at the scene and then transported by medical helicopter to OU Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition. He was released from the hospital on Monday.
The FBI did not release the agent's name, the type of firearm involved, or any other details about the incident.
"We are going to be conducting a shooting investigation as we always do," said an FBI spokesperson. "FBI personnel always try to use best safety practices and sometimes accidents happen," he added.
Normal activities at the facility include annual qualifications for weapons and other general law enforcement training.
