ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A St. Louis police officer suffered a minor gun shot injury Thursday after being accidentally shot by his partner.

It happened just after 11:00 a.m. in the 3700 block of Keokuk, between Giles and Spring.

According to the St. Louis Police, the on-duty officer’s partner was shooting at an aggressive dog when the bullet ricocheted and hit him in the ear and arm.

So, Cop A shoots Cop B.

Purportedly "aggressive" dog injures neither government employee present.

Chances the lesson learned will be "don't shoot dogs"?

Slim.

This time, you’ll be relieved to know the dog was, apparently, not shot.

It's OK. We all know, the partner did it.

A St. Louis police officer was accidentally shot Thursday by his partner, who was trying to shoot what they said was an aggressive-looking dog. The two cops were investigating local copper thefts when they were approached by an "aggressive dog showing its teeth." One officer — the one who didn't end up with a bandage on his arm — pulled his gun and fired "three or four shots" at the animal. One bullet ricocheted off a sidewalk, bouncing backward and hitting his partner near his elbow. Neither officer knew if the dog had been wounded, since it quickly ran away. Although it's lucky that the officer wasn't seriously wounded, his partner might need to spend some time working on his aim. [Source]

Must’ve been one of those aggressive-looking black dogs.

Probably a black dog of (if one goes back far enough) German breeding

Those can’t be trusted. :)

Good. Maybe they will think NOT to shoot the dog the next time. If the dog is not aggressive, leave the pooch alone.

[Question: don’t LEOS normally carry a baton?]

That is the question I have always wanted to ask in situations like this where a dog is involved....either a wack on the noggin of the dog with one or two of their batons or some kind of spray seems to me much preferable to cranking off a round or two where the ricochets could end up (as in this case) causing a whole helluva lot of problems. But then, what does reasoning and logic have to do with the actions of Government employees?

Our friends have a Black German Shepard that was trained in Germany and responds to commands in German. All six Family members, Parents and four Boys, speak fluent German since they were Expats for eight years.

The Dog would look cool in a Hoodie. Just have to figure out how to hold him down when you try to put it on him. It isn’t anything I would attempt to do. LOL

Please explain that to the (former) ground hogs, rabbits (bunnys), chipmunks and mice in the yard.

Funny, the dog was showing his teeth and that alone was apparently enough to make them feel the dog was aggressive? My dog like many others shows his teeth when he is smiling, and also when he is hot and trying to shed heat. So was the dog really being aggressive or is this just another case of the PANSY POLICE.

Well, I’m not talking about MY Dog. I make it a point to not trust any animal I do no interact with on a daily basis.

When I took my 80 pound Male Chow out in Public, I was amazed how people would just let their little children walk right up to his face and try to pet him.

He was a great Dog, but I always kept myself between the Dog and people’s Children. If they wanted to pet him, I held his head so he wouldn’t turn around and nip anybody. He never even tried, but I never forgot he was an Animal.

My Chow was a Redhead, and the kids always cried out “Kimba” when they saw him. That Lion King Movie must have been a monster hit.

The Chow we have now, a forty pound Female, is nervous when she is around people she doesn’t know. Something must have happened to her before we got her from an Animal Shelter.

I don’t take her out in crowded areas. Retraining didn’t help and I’m not giving her Drugs to cure the problem because it isn’t a problem in our household situation.

I can’t speak to those poor hogs, bunnies, chipmunks and mice, but my silly little Dog thinks she can catch Birds who dare to invade her backyard. As of today, it’s Birds 1000-, and my Dog 0-.

When DNA testing becomes cheaper and more discriminatory in the next few years, we’ll try to figure out if she is a Carolina Dog or something of a later breed (she’s an Eastern Shore, Village Dog by word of mouth).

This could have happened at the Hawthrone CA incident two weeks ago. Instead of using nonlethal force the city now pays the LEO vacation time and faces a $25k lawsuit.
