A Detroit police officer has been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a woman who was dancing during a party in his backyard, the Associated Press reports.
Two probes were conducted after 24-year-old Adaisha Miller was shot July 8, 2012 at officer Isaac Parrish’s northwest Detroit home, according to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office.
Adaisha Miller was celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday and was invited to a fish fry by friends who knew the officer, her mother, Yolanda McNair, said after the shooting.
Police said then that Miller “embraced” Parrish from behind while dancing. Parrish, now 40, was wearing his police-issued handgun on his waist, and it fired striking Miller once. The slug punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart. She died at a hospital.
