OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha police say a paramedic and a patient have been injured after a gun discharged inside an ambulance.

Lt. Darci Tierney says the shooting happened Monday afternoon as a female patient was transported to a hospital.

Tierney says a gun discharged inside the ambulance at some point during the ride. The paramedic and the patient, who was being treated for a seizure, were injured. Tierney says additional information about the circumstances of the shooting is unclear.

The paramedic was taken to Nebraska Medical Center in serious condition. The patient was taken to Creighton University Medical Center in critical condition. Tierney says both have non-life-threatening injuries.

The names of the paramedic and the woman have not been released.
