"Two officers who chased Johnson that night fired their weapons, Davis said. The one who fired the fatal round into his chest has been dismissed from the department, and the other officer remains on restricted duty as the investigation continues. The officer who was fired, Sgt. Wesley Shifflett, exhibited 'a failure to live up to the expectations of our agency, in particular use of force policies,' [Police Chief Kevin] Davis said. Caleb Kershner, an attorney for Shifflett, said his client will appeal his dismissal and expects to be exonerated." - Matthew Barakat/Associated Press, March 23, 2023
