When an off-duty Las Vegas police officer and her husband who is in the police academy, thought there was an intruder, she ended up shooting a relative who lived in the residence.
North Las Vegas police reported the female officer was startled and thought the female family member was an intruder when she arrived home 11:30 p.m. Friday.
The officer shot and her officer-husband opened fire at the relative, who lived at the home. KTNV reports.
The couple “accidentally” fired 27 rounds at the woman, according to KNTV. The relative reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

According to what a law enforcement official told KNTV, the victim is the mother of one of the shooters and it was confirmed that the victim also lives with the couple.
North Las Vegas police said the shooting appears to be accidental so no charges will be filed.
Wow, each of the 27 gunshots was just an accident. That’s a lot of accidents during just a few minutes of time – or seconds.
The mother has sustained non-life threatening injuries after suffering at least one gunshot to her leg.
There is no word on whether the mother wishes to continue living with the couple or not. Christmas night of 2015 will always be remembered by the mother.
Just yesterday, a Texas cop ‘accidentally’ shot his girlfriend in the back.
Meanwhile in Florida, a mother shot and killed her 27-year-old daughter after mistaking her for an intruder, according to police. The victim was the stepdaughter of a long time undercover drug officer and the mother works as a dispatcher for Osceola County.
All of the aforementioned shootings have one thing in common: no charges will be filed against the irresponsible gun owners, who for some reason, decided to disregard the very basics in gun safety. Don’t aim your gun at anything or anyone you don’t want destroyed.
