A Dallas police officer is in good condition after being accidentally shot by another Dallas police officer late Friday morning.

Rookie police officer Ricardo Solis and veteran officer Christopher Thomas were searching a dark, abandoned home on the 3700 block of Crane Street for an aggravated robbery suspect when Thomas accidentally discharged his weapon, striking Solis in his torso which was protected by his bullet-proof vest, officials said.

Solis, who has been with the department for just three days, was transported to Parkland Hospital in good condition.  He is expected to be released this afternoon.

The person officers were searching for was not found.
