According to authorities, the investigator "accidentally" shot herself in the leg while inside the 4th-floor handicapped bathroom stall, Fox 5 reports.
"She was not critically wounded. A Fulton County Sheriff's Office deputy responded and administered aid until EMS arrived," the sheriff's department said in a statement. "There was never an active threat at the courthouse."
On whether or not criminal charges would be filed, former prosecutor Ash Joshi said: "It was an accidental shooting, so there is no intent to commit a crime. Unfortunately for the investigator, she was the one who was shot."
Atlanta police said the investigation remains ongoing. The employee's name has not yet been released.
