The Lafayette Police Department released the body cam video from the officer who accidentally shot a fellow officer in the back while serving a warrant earlier this week.
The police review board has determined that the shooting was accidental. Lane Butler, a three-year veteran of the department, remains in serious, but stable, condition.
Police said Butler was shot in the back after another officer accidentally discharged his weapon when a dog jumped on him during a criminal mischief investigation.
During the course of their investigation, officers received information about a person who was wanted at the same location they were responding.
While investigating, a police say a large, aggressive dog charged the officers and one of them discharged their weapon. That bullet struck the other officer in the back.
Lafayette police say a review board has determined that the shooting was “accidental” and the officer involved, Aaron Wright, will not be terminated.
