GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - An off-duty southern New Jersey police officer suffered a minor hand wound when a pistol he was unloading at his home accidentally discharged.

Gloucester Township police say the shooting occurred just before 3 a.m. Sunday.

The officer's name was not disclosed, but authorities said he serves on the Gloucester force and the weapon involved was a pistol that he owns. The discharge occurred at his Bromley Drive residence in the township.

The officer was treated at a hospital and released a short time later. No other injuries were reported.

Authorities said the shooting remains under investigation.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.
