New Haven Officer On Disability Mistakenly Shoots Daughter POSTED: 4:57 pm EDT May 29, 2007 UPDATED: 12:00 am EDT May 30, 2007 Email This Story | Print This Story Sign Up for Breaking News Alerts STRATFORD, Conn. -- A New Haven officer that is home on disability in Stratford mistakenly shot his 18-year-old daughter Tuesday morning. Police said 41-year-old Eric Scott, a nine-year veteran, thought his daughter was an intruder and shot her with his 9 mm service revolver. Authorities said Scott became suspicious just before 1 a.m. on Tuesday, then grabbed his police-issued gun, and searched his home on Soundview Avenue looking for an intruder. Stratford police said Scott went down into the basement, saw the back door open, and then saw a shadow, and fired one shot. Authorities said his daughter, Tasha Scott, was hit in the right knee, and was rushed to Bridgeport Hospital. Police said Tasha Scott sneaked out of the house Monday night, and tried to get back in without disturbing her parents. Scott mistook his daughter for an intruder, authorities said, because he thought she had gone to bed for the night. Tasha Scott underwent surgery, but NBC 30 News reported that her injuries were not life-threatening. No charges have been filed so far, but the state's attorney's office said they would review the case once the investigation is complete. -- Bet she wont sneak out again to go whoring around.
