Man accidentally shot with officer's stray bullet in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A police officer’s gun accidentally went off as he crept through a broken window during an Albuquerque burglary investigation, wounding a man in an apartment below, officials said Monday.

Police emphasized the shooting was accidental, but it occurred in an agency under intense scrutiny for a series of shootings over the past several years.

The latest incident happened early Sunday while police were investigating a break-in at a second-floor apartment, Albuquerque Police spokesman Simon Drobik said.

The officer involved was climbing through one of the unit’s windows when his gun accidentally went off, though authorities wouldn’t say why.
