There is no "law" pertaining to law enforcment using warning shots. It is generally up to each individual law enforcement agency to decide if they want to makes policies regarding warning shots. Many agencies forbid their officers from shooting warning shots. I know a few agnecies who have recently changed that policy and now allow it, although they do not encourage it.
