SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Police Department will investigate internally the actions of an off-duty officer whose gun went off Friday night at a small Halloween party in unincorporated Los Altos, authorities said.
The negligent firing of a gun can be a crime. But the incident was not deemed criminal and the officer was not arrested, said Sgt. Don Morrissey of the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department.
