The News & Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina)
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The Chapel Hill police officer who shot a fellow officer in the foot during a training exercise last month has returned to work.

Sgt. Donald Rhoads, 34, was judged fit to return to duty after being on administrative leave March 1 to 6, Police Chief Gregg Jarvies said. The incident was the second time his weapon had gone off accidentally, according to police.

Sgt. Andrew Smith had surgery last week to strengthen the bone in his foot. He faces more surgery, Jarvies said. He is expected to return to full duty in six to seven months, Jarvies said.
