Narcotic police officer's gun goes off accidentally during a struggle and strikes a woman a floor below... What's the odds on that happening???

Narcotics cop accidentally shoots woman while searching Brooklyn apartment
Bullet went through the floor and into the apartment where the woman lives

A narcotics cop struggling with a suspect in a Brooklyn apartment accidentally fired his gun through the floor, striking a woman sleeping in the flat below, police said.

The 25-year-old victim was grazed in the left forearm and rushed to Kings County Hospital after the 6:05 a.m. incident and is expected to make a full recovery.

Two suspects were taken into custody and drugs were found in the third-floor apartment at 3003 Clarendon Road.

Sources said plainclothes officers from Brooklyn South Narcotics showed up with a search warrant for the flat.

The first officer to enter was wearing his shield around his neck and apparently had his gun in his hand when one a 28-year-old man lunged at him in an effort to flee, sources said.

“There was a struggle between an officer and the suspect,’’ one source said. “The officer’s gun accidentally discharged one round.”

The bullet tore through the floor and entered the ceiling of the apartment below, where the woman was sleeping.

The male suspect and a 29-year-old woman were both arrested.

A little girl was later seen taken from the scene, but it wasn’t clear if she was in either apartment at the time of the incident.

The woman was in stable condition at Kings County and will probably be released later Thursday, sources said.

almost third world construction standards.
