Calif. Police Respond to Woman’s 911 Call…And Then Accidentally Shoot Her


San Diego police are under close scrutiny after accidentally shooting a homeowner who called 911 after allegedly seeing a man in a ski mask prowling the neighborhood.

While searching for the man, police entered the backyard of the woman’s home, San Diego County sheriff’s homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit explained.  There, they made contact with the homeowner and, horrifyingly, shot her.

While police say Jennifer Orey was struck in the arm, her family maintains otherwise.

“You know what, you guys need to get your story straight,” Dennis Morgan, the woman’s father, admonished. “She wasn’t shot in the arm she was shot in the chest.”

Her sister-in-law added: “Part of a bullet ricocheted off and hit her in the pinky, and they also had to do a little bit of repair to her pinky as well.”

Orey successfully underwent surgery Monday, and is expected to be okay.

10News has more information on the unusual shooting:

[San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore] said the deputies thought Orey’s open gate looked suspicious, so they went into her backyard. The deputies ran into Orey, and one of them had a “spontaneous reaction.”

Authorities said they did not know exactly what prompted the shooting. They said the woman did not have anything in her hands and was not armed at the time.

Morgan said Orey told him she heard something in her backyard so she went to check it out.

“She saw a flashlight and identified herself as the homeowner and he shot her,” said Orey’s father, Dennis Morgan.

Orey told relatives the deputy told her to lay on her back until paramedics arrived.

Her father said Orey was the first woman accepted in the Navy’s Air and Sea Rescue team and she knew if she stayed on her back she would die, so she turned on her side and waited.

Morgan said he believes the sheriff’s department is downplaying the shooting. “I told them I’m really pissed off,” he said. “I’m pissed off as hell. A cop could have very easily killed my daughter.”

Before she was rushed to the hospital, Orey had one question for the deputy. “After he shot her, she looked at him and said, ‘Why did you shoot me?’” said Morgan. [Emphasis added]

Apparently the officers never responded, and the matter is under investigation.

    This was clearly a perfect example of what is to come. They want us to think theses are accidents happening or suicide’s and the fact of the mattter is the cops have been told to use whatever excuse they have to, but DEPOPULATE as much as you can, so whenever you can make it look like something else, do it. Also cops are trained repeatedly in first aid, not to mention practice it on a regualra basis, and know better, so how many other prople have this or other cops murdered by giving this ridiculous suggestion to lay on their back, you NEVER LIE ON YOUR BACK, sitting up is another position to have been suggested…thsi was intentional, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!! TEH COPS were already people looking to bully, becasue they were as children (most of them), therefore total control is everything to them (psychotic), and now they have it when it comes to the masses!!! Watch for more to come

    Dad sounds pretty tenacious. I don’t think the cops are going to get off easy on this one.

    Like I always said; The only thing stupider than a cop
    is a severely retarded turnip!
    And now the Jewish/Fascist regime has set loose their
    mentally challenged pigs in blue to create chaos
    on the streets of America.
    Talk about population control!
