Toledo police officer back on duty after probe

Gafeney was entangled in investigation of gunshot fired in apartment


A Toledo police officer who had been relieved of duty pending an internal investigation is back at work.

Carlyle Gafeney, 27, a patrol officer, was relieved of duty, with pay, on Oct. 14 and returned to work full time on Thursday, said police Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

Officer Gafeney was one of three who became entangled in internal and criminal investigations after a single gunshot was fired inside a Standart Lofts apartment, 34 S. Erie St., on Oct. 12.

The other two officers, Jada Smith, 25, and Scott Macinnis, 33, resigned in the week following the incident.

The three officers were off duty when Ms. Smith and Mr. Macinnis were at the apartment, rented by the latter, when the two got into an argument and Ms. Smith allegedly fired a gun in an attempt to harm herself, police have said.

Police said Mr. Gafeney was not in the apartment at the time, but was with the pair earlier in the evening.

Citing the ongoing investigations, police said additional details cannot yet be released.
