SAN DIEGO (AP) - An FBI agent was accidentally shot in the leg Thursday when his gun unintentionally discharged during firearms training at a San Diego facility for law enforcement.

The agent was listed in good condition at a hospital following the incident at the San Diego Regional Firearms Center in Otay Mesa, near the U.S.-Mexico border. The wound was not life-threatening.

The FBI is not releasing the man’s identity. He was participating in a standard qualification course for the use of firearms, which the agency requires several times a year, FBI spokesman Darrell Foxworth said.

The agency did not release further details on the accident or the training.
