Police officers were already standing outside Britteney Miles’ Maple Street apartment when she opened the door to tell them that her earlier 911 call was the result of a small confusion.

Officer Danielle Petrangelo never gave the pregnant woman a chance.

The cop fired in Miles’ direction and the bullet went right through her chin, narrowly missing the daughter she was holding at the time.

When the mother looked down she saw her child was covered in blood from her chin wound.

What caused the confusion?

On May 5, 2012 the victim called 911 suspecting that someone was trying to break into her home.

It turned out that she was mistaken, and it was her boyfriend who was trying to get in.

Police had already arrived when she realized that there had been a misunderstanding.

It turns out the officer who shot her, already had a history of reckless decisions.

In fact, just a month after the incident on an Maple Street the officer was found driving in the opposite direction of the traffic on Route Five in West Springfield.

She has since been let go from service. Despite the discharge, she is trying to get her job back.

In regards to the incident with Miles, the cop was cleared of any wrongdoing.

A legal course of action

The victim, who now has arthritis of the jaw, filed a lawsuit in April this year.

Last week, well over three years after the horrific episode, she was granted $20,000 on behalf of her children.

According to the judge, this amount will be paid straight into investment accounts and is being offered as compensation for emotional distress that the children experienced.

However, Miles will still go ahead with her lawsuit of $ 1.5 million in federal court.
