Detroit Police Officer Diamond Greenwood, 26, faces felony charges for shooting a gun at a crowded wedding in Detroit where she was a guest, the Wayne County Prosecutor's announced Thursday. No one was hurt.

Officers were dispatched to a party in the 6300 block of Stearns Street at Livernois around 8 p.m. last Oct. 27 for a "shooting in progress," authorities say, and they encountered a fight. There was also gunfire in the rear of the building.

During the fight involving multiple people, Greenwood -- who was off-duty and allegedly intoxicated -- pulled her department-issued weapon and pointed it at a 29-year-old Detroit man and several people and fired. No one was hit.

After firing the gun she allegedly handed it to her brother, Terry Dawayne Catchings, 24, before leaving.

Officers arrested Greenwood when she was found in her car in the parking lot. The reception was four blocks from the 10th Police Precinct on the west side.

Greenwood faces charges of felonious assault, aggravated assault, obstruction of justice, brandishing a weapon in public, wilful neglect of duty, possession under the Influence, operating while Intoxicated and three counts of felony firearm.

Her brother has been charged with discharge in or at a building, felon in possession of a gun and two felony firearm counts.
