A Department of Public Safety Recruit is recovering after a shooting accident at a training facility.

It happened at the Arizona Law Enforcement Training Academy at 15th Avenue and Dobbins Road.

According to Phoenix police, the man shot himself in the leg as he was holstering his weapon.

The trainee, whose name has not been released, was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital. He is expected to recover.

DPS said it's not clear how many people were at the shooting range at the time of the accident, but they are interviewing all witnesses.

Oops. See what we have to put up with in AZ.

Better than the local guy that shot his wife in the stomach with his CHL piece or my neighbor that blew his hand off day before yesterday.
