Albany--An Albany Police officer who shot a woman inside an abandoned house in July is off the streets and on desk duty.

Corporal Vy Chu shot 30-year-old Alice Warren in the chest inside an abandoned house on South Davis Street.

He told investigators he thought she had a weapon. Police won't say if Warren did, indeed, have a weapon.

Warren survived her gunshot wound.  And the police chief defends his officers' actions.  

"From our perspective we don't believe the officer made an error in anyway," says Albany Police Chief, James Younger. 

The GBI is still investigating the shooting.
