Parole Agent Accidentally Shoots Himself In Leg Before Arrest

MORENO VALLEY (CBS) — A parole agent is recovering Tuesday after shooting himself in the leg while he prepared to make an arrest.

An unidentified parole agent shot himself in the left calf around 9 a.m. outside of a home in the 16000 block of War Cloud Drive.

Department of Parole officials are investigating, but aren’t sure why the gun went off. The sheriff’s department is considering the shooting as an accidental discharge.

The agent was treated for a gunshot wound at Riverside County Regional Medical Center.

No one was hurt and agents did end up arresting the parolee.
