Indiana Cop Shoots Fellow Cop In The Back, No Discipline Taken

A police officer in Lafayette, Indiana was accidentally shot in the back by another officer who was aiming for a dog on Jan. 8.

Three officers, including Butler and her partner, Aaron Wright, were looking for a suspect who had an outstanding warrant, when they were confronted by a dog, police said, notes ABC News

Police body cam video shows Butler exiting the home with Wright following her when the dog barked loudly, and Wright fires his gun, shooting Butler in the left shoulder.

Police said Wright was attacked by the dog from behind, and accidentally fired his gun.

Lafayette Police Chief Patrick Flannelly claimed the shooting was not negligence and Wright is not expected to face disciplinary action:

Our conclusion in this incident was this was not a result of an act of negligence, carelessness or otherwise reckless behavior. It was accidental.
