Accidental shooting at the US White House

Two US Secret Service officers were injured in an accidental shooting Tuesday at the White House. The incident occurred in a security booth at the southwest gate. Secret Service spokeswoman Kim Bruce said one officer was injured in the leg and the other received a shrapnel wound in his face. She said the injuries appeared to be non-life threatening. The gun involved was a service-issued weapon, she said. She said the Secret Service Office of Inspection would conduct a review.
