RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A report released by Raleigh police shows an officer fired her gun at an assault suspect last week after another officer’s Taser had no effect.

Raleigh police released the report Tuesday night that showed Officer S.C. Nziuki fired her gun and wounded Marcel Jordan after another officer fired a Taser that had no effect on Jordan.

The report from Police Chief C.L. Deck-Brown said the officers fired after Jordan approached the officers with scissors on Dec. 17.

Officers had been called to a mental health facility by the receptionist who said a patient was attacking an employee.

Both the police department and the State Bureau of Investigation are reviewing the shooting.

Jordan was taken to WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh for treatment of the gunshot wound.
