DETROIT, MI (WFLX) -  A Detroit woman is dead after an off-duty police officer's gun accidently went off during the woman's birthday celebration.

According to the police department, Adaisha Miller hugged the officer from behind causing the holstered weapon to go off.

The woman's mother, Yolanda McNair, says she isn't sure she's getting the whole truth about what happened. "All my daughter did was try to enjoy her 25th birthday. Now, instead of planning her 25th birthday party, I have to plan her funeral."

The officer is on administrative leave. The department says after investigating and talking to witnesses, it determined the gunshot was accidental.
