Md. Police Training Academy to Resume Next Week


BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore police say a training academy put on hold by an accidental shooting of a trainee will resume at least some operations starting next week.

The academy was suspended after an instructor accidentally shot a trainee in the head during an exercise in Baltimore County on Tuesday. The trainee was critically wounded and remains in the hospital.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Commissioner Anthony Batts will meet with the academy next week and that some training will start up again soon.

Maryland State Police are conducting a criminal investigation into the shooting, and the Baltimore police department is doing its own investigation.

Police on Thursday identified William S. Kern as the instructor who was involved in the shooting. He's been with the department for 18 years.
