2 officers face inquiry for gun shot in cruiser

BLADE STAFF

Two Toledo police officers are being investigated for accidentally firing a gun inside a patrol car and shooting out a window.

Officers Angela Domschot and Gabe Greenwalt are working their normal shifts, but the shift-level investigation is ongoing, Sgt. Joe Heffernan said.

The sergeant said the incident occurred Nov. 13 at 2:30 a.m. at or near International Park, but he could not provide details, citing contractual agreements.

Sources said the gun was one officer’s personal weapon. A single shot was fired and broke a patrol-car window. No one was injured. Per the contract, officers are allowed to have a personal weapon when working.

Officer Domschot was hired in 2006; Officer Greenwalt, 2011.

Dan Wagner, president of the Toledo Police Patrolman’s Association, did not return a call seeking comment.
