At some point we might want to think about the fact that the defense is more dangerous than the threat!

A Rockwood Police Officer accidentally fired a live round of ammunition during a “blank-fire” drill at Rockwood Middle School Thursday morning.

"We had taken the security measures to keep everyone safe, in a locked room, to lock people out from anyone from accidentally coming in while we're doing it. And we had that incident. No officers were hurt, no-- minor damage, so considering, you know, we were - I hate to say we were lucky - we were lucky," Chief Wright said.

Officials then canceled a second drill planned for Ridge View Elementary School later in the morning.
