The sergeant who fired his weapon hitting a 15-year-old boy in the back of the leg appears to have accidentally shot his weapon after getting bumped by someone, police officials said yesterday.

At 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, six police officers responded to an anonymous 911 call about a "fight with a gun" in a 9th floor apartment at 419 E. 93rd Street in Manhattan. In the hallway of the housing project, they could smell marijuana and inside the apartment they found a party with about 50 teenagers and young adults, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, a spokesman for the police department, said.
