NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Metro police officer is leaving the department after an incident on Friday involving his gun and comments he allegedly made to co-workers a day after the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas.
West precinct Officer Bruce Landes is at the center of a criminal and internal Metro police investigation after officials said he threatened another officer at roll call last week at the Edgehill police substation.
"During banter with Landes, he pulled the gun from the vicinity of his waist band and pointed it in the direction of another police officer," said police spokesman Don Aaron. Sources said his threats made reference to the shootings at Fort Hood.
