It was just a hug, but it ended up being a deadly hug at a party in Detroit, when an embrace left a woman dead of a gunshot wound.
FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper reports:
Adaisha Miller was at a party this weekend when she walked up behind an off-duty police officer and gave him a hug. Police say the officer's gun accidentally discharged, the bullet striking Miller's lung and heart. Yolanda McNair says her daughter would have turned 25 years old today (Monday).
(McNair) "Instead of telling her 'Happy Birthday,' I've got to plan her funeral."
Authorities say the officer is on administrative duty while they investigate.

Editor's Note: Detroit's police chief said Monday that the shooting was a tragic, unfathomable accident. He says the off-duty officer had his gun in a waist holster made of a soft material that would allow the trigger to be squeezed. He said there is no evidence that the officer fired the gun.
