MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Capitol police say the officer whose gun accidentally fired in the governor’s mansion Thursday night has been fired.

Governor Scott Walker and his family weren’t home at the time of the incident.

The Wisconsin Department of Administration reports the officer was initially suspended while the investigation was completed, but because the person was still in a probationary period of employment, that employment was terminated.

Nobody was injured when the weapon discharged at about 10:45 p.m. It happened inside the security office at the governor’s mansion.
