A second incident where police officers mistakenly fired on other law enforcement in Watertown during the search for the Boston Marathon Bombing suspects has been detailed in a report looking at the response to the bombings.

WCVB Channel 5 Investigates reported this week that an undercover State Police SUV had its back window shot out and one of the bullets narrowly missed a State Police lieutenant.

Several shots were fired, according to the report by Kathy Curran, in the incident which took place on Adams Street after an erroneous report that bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev had stolen a State Police SUV, according to the report.

In the first shootout, MBTA Police Officer Dic Donohue was hit by friendly fire as officers tried to stop Tsarnaev from driving away from the area of Dexter Avenue and Laurel Street.
