NAPLES, Fla. — A Naples police officer involved in a domestic shooting that left another officer dead remained in the intensive care unit Thursday as police continued to investigate the incident.
The Naples Daily News reports 14-year-veteran Sgt. Amy Young is stable at a local hospital.
She was shot in the face early Wednesday at her home during a domestic incident that killed 10-year-veteran Officer Luis Monroig. The two officers were living together at Young’s home.
Police have yet to release many details regarding the shooting – including how many weapons were fired or who fired the shots.
A third party called 911 to report the incident.
Young has been the subject of multiple internal investigations throughout her career at the department, including an accidental discharge while in pursuit of a suspect in 2011 as well as being one of six accused of engaging in sexual activity while on duty in 2012. Those allegations were later dropped, according to the report.
Despite this, The News-Press reported Young exceeded expectations in her last three annual reviews.
Monroig was also rated as exceeding expectations in his last three annual reviews.
He was a member of the department’s SWAT team and assigned to the street crime unit, according to the report.
