OKLAHOMA COUNTY, OK (KFOR/CNN) – An instructor and a cadet were shot by the same bullet at an Oklahoma gun range.

The incident happened Monday during a training exercise.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Spokeswoman Betsy Randolph says a full investigation is underway.

"Anytime we have a situation like this, we consider it extremely serious," Randolph said. "We're going to take all the necessary steps to ensure that all the safety precautions were met that have been in place for years and years, and then if we find that there's something that wasn't done correctly we'll modify our training standards to make sure this never happens again."

Both shooting victims were treated and released from the hospital.
