DETROIT (WXYZ) — An off-duty Detroit police officer and her brother were charged in a non-fatal shooting at a wedding reception.

In October 28, officers were dispatched to a wedding reception in the 6300 block of Stearns Street and found evidence of a fight scene as well as a shooting scene.

Prosecutors say off-duty DPD officer Diamond Greenwood, 26, was allegedly intoxicated and armed with her department-issue weapon at the reception.

An argument reportedly occurred between several people that escalated into physical altercations among multiple attendees.

Prosecutors say Greenwood allegedly pulled out her weapon and pointed it at a 29-year-old Detroit man and several people before leaving. Prosecutors say she also allegedly fired the weapon in the building.

After firing, Greenwood reportedly handed the weapon off to her brother, 24-year-old Terry Catchings, and left. Officers found her in her car in the parking lot and she was arrested at the scene.

Greenwood has been charged with two counts of Felonious Assault, Aggravated Assault, Obstruction of Justice, Firearms – Brandishing Weapon in Public, Public Officer - Willful Neglect of Duty, Firearms – Possession Under the Influence, Operating While Intoxicated and three counts of Felony Firearm.

Catchings has been charged with Weapons – Firearm – Discharge In or At a Building, Firearms – Felon in Possession, and two counts of Felony Firearm.

They will be arraigned at 10:30 a.m. on Friday.
