So a cop on a SWAT raid spies what he believes is a threat and discharges his weapon into the finger of a fellow officer. This smells like bullshit to me.
1 If there was a threat, then why did the only shot fired hit another cop? Why was the 'threat' not shot as well?
2 If there were no other injuries during the raid? Couldn't have been much of a threat.

This smells like a cop with poor trigger discipline trying to cover his ass after having a negligent discharge, and his fellow officers going along with it.

Yeah, that's the only thing that makes sense. Even in the face of a significant threat I can't imagine pulling the trigger with a buddy in the field of fire. He's lucky his squaddies are covering for him -- though I can't imagine the load of shit he's taking for it.
