Sansom Park officer shot during active shooter training at elementary school, police say

FOREST HILL, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A Sansom Park police officer is in critical condition after being shot during an active shooter training session at an elementary school on Saturday afternoon.

At around 2:12 p.m. on Nov. 5, Forest Hill Police received a call that an officer was down in a “practice accident”, Everman Police Chief Craig Spencer said.

Spencer said the officer was shot with live ammunition and then taken by ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital where she is in critical but stable condition. His identity has not been revealed at this time.

The session was hosted by a third-party training provider at David K. Sellars Elementary in Forest Hill, Spencer said. Several other agencies, including the Sansom Park Police Department, also participated in the training.

Spencer said the third-party vendor provided the equipment used and there were no plans for live-fire training.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers are currently investigating the incident.

Spencer said he doesn’t know if anyone has been placed on administrative leave at this time.

Forest Hill Mayor Stephanie Boardingham has since asked the community to send prayers and condolences to the officer’s family.

“We would just like to send our prayers and condolences to the family of the officer who was shot. Additionally, we ask the same for our officers here at Forest Hill, as well as all officers who attended this training” , Boardingham said. . “Please help us pray for the officers and for everyone leading the investigation so we can all get through this.”
