Deputy Recovering After Shooting, Surgery

A Stanislaus County Sheriff´s Deputy is now recovering, out of intensive care, after having his leg amputated.

The operation happened last week, five days after being shot in the upper leg by a fellow deputy during a sniper training exercise. Deputy Erik Neuman was reportedly shot by 32-year-old Deputy Ian Dimberg during the shooting, which has been ruled accidental by an investigator. Dimberg and two other deputies present at the time were placed on administrative leave.

They´re due to return to work on Monday.
