North Las Vegas police said that no charges are expected to be filed against an off-duty officer and her husband, who is in the police academy, after they shot a female family member.
KTNV reported that the Las Vegas police officer and her husband were asleep on Christmas night when the family member came home unexpectedly at 11:30 pm.
The couple “accidentally” fired 27 rounds at the woman, according to KNTV. The relative reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital. At least one bullet was said to have hit her leg.
A law enforcement official told KNTV that the victim was the mother of one of the shooters. She had access to the home because she lives with the couple.
It was not clear if an investigation was ongoing, but North Las Vegas police said that no charges would be filed because the shooting had been accidental.
