CLEVELAND, Ohio – A Cleveland police officer was shot in the upper arm early Sunday while at a home checking on a home security alarm, police say.

The officer was treated for a gunshot wound to his bicep at University Hospitals and released, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said.

He was injured about 3 a.m. while responding to a residential alarm call at a house on the 2300 block of East 61st Street in the city’s Central neighborhood, Ciaccia said. Officers were checking for signs of forced entry into the home when one knocked on the front door to check on the residents.

The gunshot was fired from inside the house, Ciaccia said. After that, members of the SWAT team went to the home, and a woman was arrested.

It’s unclear whether the woman was the person who shot at the officer, Ciaccia said. The shooting investigation continues.
