HAMPTON, Iowa (AP) — A northern Iowa police officer is recovering from hand surgery following an accidental shooting at a gun range.

The Hampton Police Department says the accident occurred last week during night handgun qualification. The department says one of the officers had a weapon malfunction. Firearms instructor Al Brandt, a Hampton officer, tried to clear the malfunction but the gun fired, and one of his hands was struck.

The department says Brandt is recovering at home after surgery at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa in Mason City.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident as part of standard procedure.
