Negligence probe over shooting
A POLICE officer whose sister-in-law shot herself dead with his revolver is being investigated for negligence.
The 39-year-old officer put his gun on the balcony of the Chai Wan home of Chan Lai-sim, 31, when he arrived for dinner on Sunday night.
Chan got up during dinner to go to the toilet and shot herself through the temple at the Wan Tsui Estate flat.
A suicide note was found.
Police were investigating whether negligence was involved, a spokesman said.
