BALTIMORE — A Maryland police trainee is in critical condition after being shot in the head in a training accident.

Authorities said at a news conference late Tuesday that the trainee, who is in his 40s, underwent surgery at the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

City police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the trainee was in critical condition.

Guglielmi said the accident happened about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at a firearms training center on the grounds of the former Rosewood Center in Owings Mills, a suburb of Baltimore. City police were administering the training.

Officials say police academy training has been suspended pending a safety review.

The man was a trainee for the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus police.

Maryland State Police are leading the investigation into the incident.
