Posted: Updated:

Two Iowa City Police officers were hurt after a gun went off while they were cleaning it.

It happened Monday night around 8:30. Several officers were cleaning weapons at the ICPD substation at 1067 Highway 6 East, when an officer accidentally fired the gun.

That officer was hurt, along with another who was standing close by. Both were taken the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. They have since been released, and will survive.

It's unclear at this point what type of firearm was involved.

The names of the officers are not being released. ICPD will conduct an internal investigation.
