San Diego Officer Shot Last Spring was Hit by Friendly Fire

September 24, 2015  | 

A San Diego police officer wounded last spring in an exchange of gunfire with a fleeing suspect was struck by a round discharged by a fellow officer, SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman confirmed Wednesday.

Officer Heather Seddon suffered a bullet wound to her neck while chasing 34-year-old Dennis Richard Fiel through Clairemont Mesa along with other patrol personnel on the morning of May 17.

When Fiel -- a suspect in a months-long series of non-injury shootings of buildings in Kearny Mesa -- drew a gun and opened fire on his pursuers, Officers Joshua Hodge and Mario Larrea returned fire.

Fiel died at the scene of the shootout just north of Sharp Memorial Hospital.

Seddon was hospitalized for several days, continued her recovery at home and eventually returned to work, KGTV reports.
