A Philadelphia police officer was acting in self-defense when she shot and wounded her husband outside their suburban home, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.


The husband, David Perez, who is recovering from the gunshot wound to the abdomen, has been charged with stalking and simple assault in an alleged attack on his wife, Officer Caren Perez.

The officer was off-duty when she shot her husband outside their Northampton Township home on April 18.





The District Attorney’s Office said this in a statement:

“The charging documents allege that Ms. Perez repeatedly had been threatened and physically assaulted by her husband in the past. After a thorough investigation by detectives from the Northampton Township Police Department and the Bucks County Detectives Bureau, it was determined that Ms. Perez fired her weapon only after being assaulted yet again, and only after she reasonably concluded that her life was in immediate danger. As such, she is not charged in this incident.”
