Accidental shooting wounds bystander

One person is in the hospital this morning after being accidentally shot by a Houston police officer.

At around 1 a.m. Tuesday. a fight started at Mr. A’s nightclub in northeast Houston. Four police officers were working approved extra jobs as security guards . One of them was asked inside to try to calm everyone down. Inside he saw someone reaching into his waistband as if for a gun. Fearing for the safety of the people around him, he drew his weapon. Someone pushed the officer down from behind and the gun went off accidentally shooting a bystander.

That person is in the hospital with an injury determined not to be life-threatening.
