Reno cop body cam shows accidental shooting after sun gun strike

Reno police released body-worn camera footage Sunday showing an officer who unintentionally shot a driver after the officer was accidentally struck by a deputy's stun gun during a traffic stop last month.

According to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy pulled over a driver who was reportedly driving recklessly on South Virginia Street.

One of the darts struck a Reno police officer in the knee – causing him to "unintentionally" fire the gun once at the man’s shoulder, Robinson said in the video.

The Reno Police Department, Sparks Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff's Office changed their policies to say investigators would release body camera footage within 14 days of a police shooting.

The agencies have also met with the University Police Services, the Washoe County School District Police Department and the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office regarding the policy change.
