Arlington Police Officer Fired After Being Charged with Homicide in Shooting Death of 24-Year-Old Black Man — The Root

Arlington, Tex. police officer Bau Tran has been fired days after he was charged with criminally negligent homicide for shooting and killing 24-year-old O’Shae Terry during a traffic stop in 2018, according to the Associated Press. Warning: Very graphic video.

Tran may appeal his dismissal. He has yet to enter a plea in his criminal case. While Terry’s death was overshadowed by more prominent cases last year, Tran’s firing has brought attention to the shooting.
