ONLY ON 3: Leland police officer shot in groin with training bullets wins harassment complaint against department


LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- We have learned that a Leland police officer recently filed a harassment charge against the police department - and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission found in her favor late last week.

Multiple sources tell us Sherry Lewis was shot in the private area multiple times with training simulation ammunition by fellow officers.

Her attorney says she was injured by the shots.

Leland Police Chief Timothy Jayne referred our calls to Town Manager Bill Farris.

We called Farris and he told us he couldn't comment on the story.

The Leland Town Council is scheduled to discuss the matter at their Thursday meeting.
