Calling the shooting an accident and "a stupid act," Lehigh County District Attorney James Martin said Tuesday no charges will be filed against a former Allentown police lieutenant who shot another officer with a toy handgun inside headquarters.

Thomas R. Houck wounded officer Jason M. Krasley in the arm with a plastic soft-air BB gun May 13 near the complaint desk, Martin said.
