Georgia police busted into the wrong house, and chaos ensued.

Three DeKalb County police officers were looking for a suspicious person Monday night when they went into the wrong home, shooting a dog, the homeowner and maybe even one of their fellow cops in the process, KTLA5 reports.

Police say they entered through the unlocked backdoor and identified themselves, but that somehow one officer and the owner of the home were both shot in the leg. What exactly happened remains unclear.

“Early investigation indicates that the injured officer was likely shot accidentally by one of the other officers on the scene,” Georgia Bureau of Investigation officials said in a statement.

All three officers have been put on administrative leave, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident. The dog has died.

“The officer is critical. He lost a lot of blood,” Alexander said. “The homeowner, who was struck in the leg, is also at the hospital as well.”
