SHERWOOD, AR - A Sherwood police officer is recovering from a gun shot wound after accidentally being shot by another officer during a domestic disturbance on New Year's Day.
Early Sunday morning Sherwood police responded to a home on West Shore Drive in the Austin Lakes on the Bay subdivision, first around 2 am, then returning about an hour later. Police say while one officer was trying to subdue a domestic disturbance his service weapon accidentally discharged hitting the other officer. Police say the officer's injuries are not-life threatening.
Neighbors say they heard multiple shots at the house even before officers arrived. Hayley Ward lives next door to where the disturbance happened. "We love our cops in Sherwood, and we definitely feel safe, we just hate that this happened so close to our home."
No names of those involved are being released. Police say no one has been arrested and no charges are being filed.
