SAN JOSE, Calif. — The robbery suspects got more than they bargained for when they called a Domino's and ordered three pizzas and two liters of soda—they got a San Jose cop posing as a delivery man.

But in what police say was an "intense fight" with three suspects, officer Geeno Gular was shot by a fellow officer, whose gun discharged accidentally during the alleged pizza robbery attempt. That officer was slightly injured.

In the end, two 17-year-old boys and a 16-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery. One of the teens suffered a minor head injury, Sgt. Nick Muyo said Thursday.
