Hug Triggers Officer's Gun, Kills Woman

July 09, 2012  | 

A Detroit woman was fatally shot by an off-duty officer's service weapon early Sunday, as she hugged the officer at a party, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Adaisha Miller, who would have turned 25 today, was embracing the Detroit Police Department officer when the shooting occurred near 12:30 a.m. Officer Issac Parrish was carrying his .40-caliber S&W M&P service pistol in an inside-the-waistband holster he covered with his shirt.

Officer Parrish was carrying the pistol in a holster that was soft enough that the gun's trigger could be pulled without it being unholstered, Chief Ralph Godbey told the Free Press on Monday. The officer didn't touch the weapon.

Miller's mother, Yolanda McNair, told the Free Press she wasn't satifsied with the department's explanation of the shooting and asked, "why do you need a weapon with a round in the chamber?"
