WASHINGTON — The Veterans Crisis Line mishandled an interaction with a veteran who shot and killed a family member after the call ended, a federal watchdog reported Thursday.

The Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General said the response was “insufficient and delayed,” and that the crisis line responder “failed to take action” to prevent the death.
