Police Officer Injured While Chasing Suspect

Los Angeles: A Los Angeles police officer who works the Gang Enforcement Detail suffered a gunshot wound to his thigh while chasing a suspect yesterday in Venice.

At around 10:15 p.m., Officer Anthony Solis and his partner were on routine patrol checking for gang activity in the 700 block of Sunset Avenue.  When they drove up behind an apartment building, they spotted a suspicious man who immediately took off on foot.  While chasing the suspect, Solis accidently fired a single round from his .45 caliber Glock duty weapon and struck himself in the thigh.

The officer was taken to a local hospital where he's being treated for a non life threatening gunshot wound.

After the officers called for backup and set up a perimeter, the suspect had gotten away.

No one else was injured.

Officers Solis has been with the Department for 3 years and 7 months.

Force Investigation Division will handle the shooting incident.
