NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
A Metro police detective is on administrative leave after officials said an apparent accidental firearm discharge struck a person who was being arrested.
Police said Genaro Novarro Pascual, 25, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in stable condition after he was shot in the ankle when Detective Charles McEachron's AR-15 rifle accidentally discharged while he and two patrol officers struggled to bring him into custody.
Officers responded to the Woodbridge Apartments on Bridgeway Circle at 9:50 p.m. in regard to a man firing shots outside.
Pascual, who matched the description of the shooting suspect, was seen by officers leaving one of the units. He appeared to be intoxicated and, as he was patted down, was found to be carrying a 10-mm semi-automatic pistol with a filed off serial number in his waistband, according to authorities.
After disarming Pascual of the pistol, two officers and McEachron struggled with the suspect. During the struggle, McEachron's rifle, which was being carried in a sling in front of the detective's body, accidentally discharged.
Arrest warrants have been issued charging Pascual with possession of a firearm while intoxicated, alteration of the gun's serial number and resisting arrest. Witnesses told police that Pascual had gotten into an altercation with an acquaintance in a truck and had fired shots at the vehicle, resulting in the original call to police.
McEachron has been placed on routine administrative leave as police investigate.
