Syracuse police officer on paid leave after firing shotgun in apartment, police say

    Syracuse, N.Y. — A Syracuse police officer is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into him firing a shotgun in an apartment complex, police said Friday.

    Officer Ahmad Bradley was off-duty Wednesday in the Kimbrook Manor apartments in Clay when the gun fired, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tom Newton said. Bradley dropped the gun before it went off in the second-floor apartment, he said.

    Deputies investigated the incident and determined it was accidental and not reckless, Newtown said. Bradley will not face criminal charges, he said.

    No one was injured, Newton said.

    Newtown said the shotgun was not service-issued. Deputies removed firearms from the apartment during their investigation, Newtown said.

    The Syracuse Police Department is conducting an internal investigation into the incident, spokesman Lt. Matthew Malinowski said.

    Bradley was sworn in in December 2021. He received a $40,462 salary in 2022, according to payroll records.
