Worker Dropped Evidence Envelope, Authorities Say

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A Sacramento police property clerk was wounded by bullet shrapnel Thursday morning when she accidentally dropped an evidence envelope, authorities said.

The bullet went off at about 9:45 a.m. at the police property management building on Sequoia Pacific Boulevard, Sgt. Norm Leong said.

Shrapnel hit the clerk, a 10-year veteran, in the right leg.

She was taken to UC Davis Medical Center where she was treated and released before 1 p.m., Leong said.

The bullet wasn't in a weapon or clip, officials said. They described the accident as extremely rare.
