Rockwood Police Officer Jared Hall is on leave after he mistakenly shot a live round inside Rockwood Middle School during an exercise last Thursday.
“He’s on administrative leave without pay until further notice,” Police Chief Danny Wright confirmed Friday afternoon.
Wright said he talked to Hall after the incident, and he was contrite.
“Jared knows he made a mistake, and he admitted it,” said Wright.
Wright said he sent a distraught Hall home after the incident Thursday.
