Newly-released records show the Capitol Police officer who was terminated after firing her gun inside the governor's mansion last October told investigators the gunshot came from outside the building.
Records released at the request of the Wisconsin State Journal show the officer was in the security office in the lower level of the Maple Bluff mansion when her gun was fired. The bullet shot the eye of a cartoon ghost Halloween decoration.
Two Capitol police officers and another from Maple Bluff responded to the shooting and searched the mansion grounds for an armed intruder. Records also show the officer had not completed her firearms training and that the police department extended her probation period so she could finish it.
The officer's termination letter said she "intentionally attempted to mislead the department."
