    A Rialto police officer was recovering this morning after he was shot in the leg by a gun that fell from the shorts of a 17-year-old boy he was searching, authorities said.

    The officer had stopped the teen at 10:30 p.m. Sunday in a courtyard at the Renaissance Village apartments on North Glenwood Avenue, said Rialto Police Lt. Joe Cirilo.

    Officers were patrolling the area in response to recent shootings, including a fatal gang-related shooting two weeks ago, Cirilo said.

    While patting down the boy, the officer discovered a handgun in his waistband and handcuffed him, Cirilo said. When the officer tried to remove the handgun, it slipped through the teen's shorts and discharged, striking the officer.

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!
