ATLANTA (AP) — A day after he was charged with reckless conduct in the shooting of a real estate agent, a Georgia sheriff is vowing to continue his law enforcement duties.

Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill said in a written statement Thursday that he will continue as the county’s sheriff while facing the charges. Hill also asked for continued prayers for 43-year-old Gwenevere McCord, who was hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say Hill shot McCord Sunday in the model home of a new subdivision near Lawrenceville. Authorities say Hill told a 911 dispatcher he was conducting police training exercises and accidentally shot her.

A police report obtained Thursday by The Associated Press indicates that no alcohol or drugs were involved.

Hill was arrested Wednesday, charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and freed on bond.
