The officer, who the police are yet to identify, has been placed on leave pending official charges and will face criminal charges for the fatal shooting, officials said on Friday.

The case was initially being investigated as an officer-involved shooting, in part because the woman was still in uniform; now, the department is trying to get a warrant for manslaughter, Hall said, adding that investigators took a blood sample from the woman to test for drugs and alcohol.
The officer will be named when charges are filed.
