A Rutherford County sheriff’s deputy who has been suspended at last twice during his 24-year career accidentally shot a fellow deputy at a gun range Wednesday, according to a news release. 
Deputy Rick Emslie shot Lt. Brad Harrison during a firearms training course at the Sheriff’s Office’s firing range, according to a Sheriff’s Office release. 
“The incident happened when Deputy Emslie removed the magazine from his weapon and prepared to disassemble it to oil it and the weapon discharged,” the report states. “A bullet fragment grazed Lt. Harrison’s calf.” 
Emslie suffered powder burns to his left hand, and Harrison received a laceration to his calf, according to the report. Both were transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital and released after treatment.
