    New Haven Officer On Disability Mistakenly Shoots Daughter

    STRATFORD, Conn. -- A New Haven officer that is home on disability in Stratford mistakenly shot his 18-year-old daughter Tuesday morning.

    Police said 41-year-old Eric Scott, a nine-year veteran, thought his daughter was an intruder and shot her with his 9 mm service revolver.

    Authorities said Scott became suspicious just before 1 a.m. on Tuesday, then grabbed his police-issued gun, and searched his home on Soundview Avenue looking for an intruder. Stratford police said Scott went down into the basement, saw the back door open, and then saw a shadow, and fired one shot.

    Authorities said his daughter, Tasha Scott, was hit in the right knee, and was rushed to Bridgeport Hospital. Police said Tasha Scott sneaked out of the house Monday night, and tried to get back in without disturbing her parents. Scott mistook his daughter for an intruder, authorities said, because he thought she had gone to bed for the night.

    Tasha Scott underwent surgery, but NBC 30 News reported that her injuries were not life-threatening.

    No charges have been filed so far, but the state's attorney's office said they would review the case once the investigation is complete.

    Bet she wont sneak out again to go whoring around. :mamoru:

    I'm guessing there's a reason why the bastard was home on disability. TURN THE LIGHT ON NEXT TIME. You'll expect it, the other person won't, you'll still have the element of surprise but you'll know who you're shooting at.

    It appears that if the cop had a tactical light he would have been able to ID his target. And, why the hell did his 1 shot hit her in the knee? Luckily it was a knee shot and not a head shot.

    what a stupid cunt.

    Why would you sneak around your house when you know your dad has a pistol? Thats just asking for trouble.

    He knew it was his daughter and was tired of her sneaking out. That's why he shot her in the knee. It's a lot hard to climb out of a window with a bum knee.
