MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WMTV) - A Milwaukee police officer is recovering from a gunshot wound accidentally inflicted by another officer while they struggled with a suspect who was resisting arrest.

Police say the 33-year-old officer was taken to the hospital after the shooting about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The incident began when police tried stopping a vehicle suspected in a shooting, but the driver sped away and fled on foot after the car broke down on the city’s north side.

A short time later, officers located the suspect who resisted arrest as he was being placed in a police squad car.

During the struggle, a shot was discharged from the gun of one of the officers and struck the other officer.
