During Operation: Winter Storm, an undercover drug raid, a police officer was shot on St. Madar Street.

As the officers were undertaking the raid at one of a number of locations subject to the narcotics investigation, they were rushed by a number of pit bulls.

The officer shot and killed one of the pit bulls, but Public Safety Director James Barber tells us the officer shot himself in the lower leg while attempting to fire on the pit bulls.

The officer is being treated for his injuries at USA Medical Center. No one else sustained any injuries.
