ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The St. Louis Police Department is looking at whether more training is necessary after an off-duty officer was wounded by “friendly fire” from a fellow officer looking for suspects several weeks ago.

The Post-Dispatch reports the department is forming a committee to decide how to best train officers for such encounters.

There are no national standards on how off-duty officers should take action and uniformed officers should conduct themselves when confronted by off-duty counterparts.
