Metro Police officer mistakes relative for intruder, shoots and injures her

An off-duty Metro Police officer and her husband shot a relative Friday night at their North Las Vegas home after mistaking her for an intruder, and the relative is expected to survive her injuries, according to North Las Vegas Police.

Police were called about 11:30 p.m. to a house in the 3600 block of Kelcie Marie Avenue, near West Ann Road and Allen Lane, Officer Aaron Patty said.

The husband and wife were home sleeping when the relative, a woman who also lives at the residence, came home unexpectedly, Patty said.

The pair went to see what was going on and in the process shot the woman multiple times, he said.

She was taken to University Medical Center with injuries that appear non-life-threatening and is in stable condition, he said.

The incident remains under investigation, but no charges are expected to be filed, he said.
