Wounded Md. Trainee Released from Hospital

February 22, 2013  | 

Ten days after being shot in the head during a police training accident, a University of Maryland police trainee has been released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Police have yet to identity the trainee other than to say he is in his 40s. He was participating in Baltimore police training exercises at the abandoned Rosewood Center for the developmentally disabled in Owings Mills. Police said a training instructor mistook his service weapon for a paint-cartridge pistol and critically injured the college officer.

Sources have told The Baltimore Sun that William Scott Kern, an 18-year veteran, may have fired the shot outside of a training exercise. He remains suspended while the Maryland State Police conduct an investigation that will be forwarded to Baltimore County's state's attorney for possible criminal charges.

Read the full Baltimore Sun story.
