After pointing the gun at the officers, they fired back. They tried to give first aid, but Morgan Caviness was already without vital signs. the newspaper reported Washingtonpost.

Monroe Police said in a statement that “although this appears to be a police suicide case”, state law enforcement officials will conduct an independent investigation into the shooting.

This isn’t the first time Monroe police officers have been involved in extraordinary events. . In March this year, three female employees of the department, their partners or former associates, faced various assault charges after being accused of being assaulted during heated arguments that resulted in physical assaults.

In one case, a person was injured when one of the detained police officers tried to pull a chain around his neck. ; In another case, a woman stated that she was injured by being pushed down three steps, and in the third case, a man stated that the woman bit him in the middle of a brawl with his ex-wife.

The most recently arrested woman is an agent working as a police officer at a school. Another works as a clerk in offices, and the third is a prison guard. Although one of the cases has already been dismissed, the three women are being investigated separately by the Home Office.

“We do not comment on the cases the Home Office is investigating until they are resolved for legal reasons,” said Monroe police spokesman Adam Lindhardt.
