Po­lice of­fi­cer shot by part­ner

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

A vet­eran Dal­las po­lice of­fi­cer ac­ci­den­tally shot a rookie while they were search­ing a house.

Dal­las Po­lice Depart­ment of­fi­cials say Ri­cardo So­lis was on his third day of street pa­trols when he was shot Fri­day morn­ing.

The bul­let struck his vest but did not punc­ture it. He was treated and re­leased from a Dal­las-area hos­pi­tal.

Po­lice said the two of­fi­cers were search­ing an aban­doned house for a rob­bery sus­pect in west Dal­las when the vet­eran of­fi­cer mis­tak­enly fired his gun and struck So­lis.
