A woman celebrating the her25th birthday was fatally shot Sunday when she hugged an off-duty police officer, causing the officer’s service weapon to fire, according to police and her mother.

According to Stephens, the woman “embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidently discharge.” The bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

Stephens said the Detroit officer will remain on administrative duties while authorities investigate the shooting and report their findings to the Wayne County prosecutor. The officer’s name was not released. Source
