Authorities say an Atlanta-area police officer was shot and critically injured Monday night after officers responding to a call about a suspicious person showed up at the wrong house.
DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said the officer was shot in the thigh after he and two colleagues entered a home through the back door and identified themselves.
Alexander said the officer, whom he did not identify, had lost a lot of blood and was in surgery at a local hospital.
It was not immediately clear who fired the shots. It was not known if the homeowner also had a firearm.
