A housing authority police officer suffered a gunshot wound in the leg Wednesday night at the Cuyahoga Community College's Western Campus firing range after a gun jammed.

A group of Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority police officers were using the gun range at the Parma campus after 9 p.m. when one of the officers' guns jammed, according to an email sent to Tri-C faculty Wednesday.

Another CMHA officer who is a range instructor came over to the officer to help fix the gun, a campus spokesman said. While they were working on the gun, it accidentally fired. The bullet struck the officer in the leg, the email said.

The officer was taken to Parma General Hospital. His condition was stable, and his injury was not life-threatening, campus spokesman John Horton told Cleveland.com.
