LAS VEGAS -- A Metro Police officer is being suspended for 40 hours for his decision to shoot a man believed to be involved in a domestic violence situation, the department announced Monday.

Officer Jacquar Roston shot a man who was sitting in the passenger seat of a car outside the Hollywood Recreation Center November 2012. The victim was shot in the leg.

Roston was called to the area on a report a man beat a woman and damaged her car.

The Las Vegas Police Protection Association agreed with the decision to suspend and not terminate Officer Roston.

"In this case, the process worked and Officer Roston will be allowed to go back to the job that he was trained to do." the LVPPA said in a statement released shortly after the announcement.

The officer has been with Metro since 2009.
