The Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA), a civilian body, found that the officer was "inattentive to duty" in 2011 when he fired shots at the wrong car after a drive-by shooting, seriously injuring an innocent driver. The officer, identified in media reports as Francisco Perez, had been working off-duty as a security officer for a Mexican restaurant on the city's northwest side at the time of the shooting, the IPRA report said.
