PITTSBURGH — A Wilkinsburg police officer accidentally fired his sidearm into the ground inside the intake area of Allegheny County Jail on Wednesday night, injuring two volunteers leading 80 high school students through the facility, officials said.
The volunteers, one 18 years old and the other a retired deputy warden, were transported to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, and treated for minor injuries, Warden Ramon Rustin said.
