NJ State Trooper Shoots Himself at New York Penn Station
A New Jersey State Police trooper accidentally shot himself Sunday night at New York Penn Station, officials said.
The officer, a member of the department for under a year, shot himself once in the leg around 9:30 PM, State Police spokesman Sgt. Lawrence Peele said.
The off-duty trooper was adjusting his belt when the gun discharged on the station platform, Peele said.
He was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
He will likely not face any disciplinary action although the incident remains under investigation.
