A Dallas Police Department officer fatally shot himself while cleaning his service weapon at home on Monday afternoon, the department announced.

Officer Christopher Pasley died as a result of an apparent accidental discharge.  Officer Pasley, a five-year veteran, was assigned to the Central Patrol Division.

"The department's Employee Relations Team has been activated to coordinate assistance to the family during this traumatic time," said Chief David Brown in a release. "I request the citizens of Dallas keep Officer Pasley and his family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

The officer's death is now under investigation by the Fort Worth Police Department, because the officer lived in that city.
