HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A Huntington Beach police officer has been accidentally shot in the leg during SWAT team debriefing at the station house.

The wounded officer was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery early Thursday. The wound isn't life threatening.

KTTV says the SWAT team was at Huntington Beach police headquarters for debriefing after a day of training when the weapon accidentally discharged at about 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Lt. Mike Freeman said more information will be released later.
