Rohde was not in the same room as her daughter when she fired the gun, officials say. The bullet struck a wall.

"What happened with the discharge is she was taking her duty firearm out of one holster and putting it into a different holster that she was going to wear the next day; in the course of that one round was fired into the wall," New York State Police PBA Attorney Daniel Strollo told the Times Union. "Nobody was injured. She was fully cooperative with the New York State Police investigation. She sat down and talked to them. The daughter talked to them as well."


This went down after Rohde returned home from a retirement party for another member of the New York State Police.
