The mother of a Detroit woman shot when an off-duty officer's gun went off during a party says she is going "to stay on top" of the city's police department during the investigation into her daughter's death.

Yolanda McNair says Adaisha Miller would have been celebrating her 25th birthday Monday and was invited to Saturday's fish fry by friends who knew the officer.

Police Chief Ralph Godbee told reporters Monday that Miller was dancing with the officer and touching his waist from behind when his holstered handgun fired, striking Miller in the chest.

Godbee says the gun was in a waist holster made of soft material. He says there is no evidence the officer fired the weapon, but he stopped short of saying Miller may have accidentally pulled the trigger.
