The Florida Department of Corrections says an officer trainee was killed Thursday in an accidental shooting during firearms training.
The agency identified the trainee as Whitney Cloud. She started working for the state prison system on June 25, Yahoo News reports.
Cloud was assigned to Jefferson Correctional Institution in Jefferson County and had enrolled in training at the Harry K. Singletary Training Academy at Wakulla Correctional Institution in Wakulla County, according to the agency.
No one else was involved in the accidental shooting that fatally wounded Cloud, the agency said. Officials did not release any other details about the shooting, including how it happened, where it happened and what weapon was used.
