VIDEO: Texas Officer Accidentally Shoots Neighbor Through Apartment Wall

A Freeport (TX) Police officer has been taken off duty after he accidentally shot his next door neighbor, according to police.

Investigators aren't saying exactly what the officer was doing at the time that caused his gun to fire inside his apartment in the 100 block of Lakeview drive in Clute.

The incident happened at 4 a.m. Saturday, police said. The bullet apparently went through the wall of the officer's apartment and hit his neighbor in the back. The victim survived and was taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries, KHOU TV reports.

No such thing as accidental shooting. It is negligence on the part of the Officer. As Law Enforcement, those who are around firearms and training all the time, you should be more responsible. Hold yourselfs accountable, and check the firearm before cleaning or clearing it. Get a clearing barrel or something to help out. Do yourself a favor, account for the ammunition, and even then, get a second opinion. Negligent shooting is too much.

And this is not an accidental shooting!!!
