The Lafayette Police Department released the body cam video from the officer who accidentally shot a fellow officer in the back while serving a warrant earlier this week.

The police review board has determined that the shooting was accidental.

The department said Lane Butler, a three-year veteran of the department, remains in serious, but stable, condition at Franciscan Health Lafayette East.

Police said Butler was shot in the back after another officer accidentally discharged his weapon when a dog jumped on him during a criminal mischief investigation.
