Off-duty Metro officer, husband accidentally shoot relative


An off-duty Metro officer and her husband accidentally shot their relative just before Christmas Day came to an end.

North Las Vegas police responded to a call about 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 3600 block of Kelcie Marie Avenue, according to Officer Aaron Patty.

The off-duty officer and her husband were asleep in the home, when their relative, who lives in the house, came home unexpectedly, according to police.

The officer and her husband both shot at their relative with seperate weapons, Patty said.

The shot woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

This is not being considered an officer involved shooting since the officer was off-duty, and charges will not be filed against the couple since the shooting is considered an accident, Patty said.
