A police officer in St. Louis has died in what authorities are calling an accidental shooting.

The police chief says it happened early Thursday morning when the woman, who was off duty, stopped at an on-duty officer’s home.

Another officer, also on-duty, was at the house.

The victim, who had been on the force for two years, was shot in the chest and died at a local hospital.

She was 24.

Police aren’t saying how the shooting happened.
