No charges for Sgt. who ‘dry fired’ unloaded gun during roll call


The DC Police officer who dry-fired a firearm at the head of another officer during an a questionably impromptu active shooter training scenario will not be charged, according to the US Attorney’s Office.

According to NBC Washington, The incident occurred April 16th, when a police sergeant from DC’s first district station told an officer to unload his weapon before entering a room of 10-20 armed officers pretending to be an active shooter, dry firing his weapon at the head of a fellow officer.

While there were no injuries, one officer was put on medical leave “due to stress.”

The Sergeant who initiated the training is a 30 year veteran of the department, though his tactics were questionable since live firearms are not to be used for training purposes, according to the department.
