JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) -- An official says a student has accidentally shot herself in a leg during a drill at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy in Johnston.
   
The shooting occurred around 2:15 p.m. Monday. Academy director Judy Bradshaw told The Des Moines Register that the student shot herself in a thigh when drawing her gun during the drill. Bradshaw says the bullet went through the thigh and didn't hit any bones.
   
Bradshaw says Monday was the first day of a two-week school during which the academy trains officers to become firearms instructors. Bradshaw also says the shooting was the first during an academy training session.
