The police officer acquitted in an off-duty shooting that wounded a woman and her young son in 2008 will return to desk duty Monday. Frank White has been on unpaid leave. Whether White will return to patrol duty will be determined by a personnel review that may take three weeks, officials said. A San Diego County Superior Court jury Monday acquitted White in the March 2008 "road rage" incident in which he was confronted by a motorist in Oceanside. White was charged with felony negligent discharge of a firearm and misdemeanor brandishing a weapon in an angry manner.

Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis said Thursday she understands the public's frustration with her office and the Oceanside Police Department for not releasing details about the March 15 incident in which an off-duty San Diego police officer shot and wounded a woman and her young son in their car. But she said that releasing information could jeopardize the investigation. In a television interview, Dumanis suggested that the investigation was being hampered by Rachel Silva's refusal to talk to police.

March 27, 2008 | Woman shot by officer files claim
A woman who was shot twice by an off-duty police officer after a traffic dispute filed a claim Wednesday against the city seeking unspecified damages. Rachel Silva, 27, also wants the city to begin psychiatric testing of its police officers and to regulate or restrict off-duty officers from carrying loaded weapons. Silva, 27, was hit twice in the arm by Officer Frank White in a parking lot outside a Lowe's store in Oceanside, north of San Diego. Her 8-year-old son, Johnny, was hit in the leg. The shooting happened after one vehicle cut another off about 9:15 p.m. March 15. White was driving his own car and was accompanied by his wife, a dispatcher for the Carlsbad Police Department.
