Ohio police cadet seriously wounded at firing range

NAPOLEON, Oh (4-7-16) A police cadet is in critical condition at a Toledo hospital after he was wounded in the back in what investigators believe was an accidental shooting at a firing range.

The Toledo Blade reports the male cadet was training Tuesday night with the Northwest State Law Enforcement Academy when the shooting occurred. He was taken to Henry County Hospital before being flown by helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

The unidentified cadet is expected to survive, officials say.

Investigators tell a student was oiling a 9mm handgun when it accidentally fired and struck the other student in the back.

"[The shooter] was very, very, very emotional and upset," Henry County Sheriff Michael Bodenbender tells the Blade.

"All the indications we have is that it was an accident. We have not spoken to the victim yet. But the rest of the cadets and instructors that were there, that's the impression that we got -- that it was an accident."

No charges are expected to be filed.
