    RIVERDALE, Utah — The police chief in Riverdale accidentally shot himself in an ankle while demonstrating how to dislodge a jammed handgun.

    Chief Dave Hansen was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden for surgery.

    The 54-year-old chief accidentally fired a gun during a training exercise inside a conference room at Riverdale police headquarters.

    A fire captain and Riverdale Mayor Bruce Burrows confirmed the chief shot himself Saturday in an ankle bone. They said he was trying to fix a gun with a jammed round when the bullet fired.

    Riverdale police officers carry .40-caliber pistols.

    Hospital supervisor Rohn Larsen said Hansen was in stable condition Sunday. Larsen said he couldn't reveal which ankle — left or right — the chief shot.

    A Weber County dispatcher said nobody from the Riverdale police department was available Sunday to release any information on the accident. A patrol officer on duty Sunday said he didn't know anything about it.

    The chief's brother, a state lawmaker, said Hansen is a 23-year veteran and chief of the Riverdale police force since 2006.

    Rep. Neil Hansen, D-Ogden, said he regularly goes target practicing with his brother and described him as safety-conscious.

    "I've never seen him do anything reckless," Neil Hansen told the Standard-Examiner of Ogden.
