TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Two Toledo Police officers who had been under investigation because of a weekend incident involving a gun have resigned.
Toledo Police Lt. Mark King says Officer Jada Smith resigned Wednesday night and Officer Scott Macinnis resigned Thursday afternoon. Both were under investigation for a shooting incident early Saturday morning at the Standart Lofts on Erie Street.
Lt. King says Jada Smith admitted to firing her weapon but police don't know the reason.
King says a third officer, Carlyle Gaffeney, was also under investigation in the incident and has been relieved of duty with full pay. King says he has no knowledge of a resignation by Gaffeney.
Police say officers Smith and Micginnis were dating, and got into some sort of disagreement around 1:30 Saturday morning. Dispatch logs show that Macinnis called police saying that Smith fired off a shot trying to kill herself, and that he wrestled the weapon away from her and needed help.
Police at the scene say a shot was fired into the floor. Police also collected evidence at the scene, including a 40 caliber hand gun and ammunition.
According to King, police have closed the internal investigation into former officers Smith and Macinnis. Both could still face criminal charges for discharging a weapon in public.
