Police officer fired after fatal shooting involving unarmed Black couple
Hispanic Waukegan police officer who shot a black couple inside a vehicle Tuesday was fired late Friday. The department says the officer committed multiple policy and procedure violations. That shooting killed 19 year old Marcella Stinnett and wounded his 20 year old girlfriend to Pharrell Williams. Investigators say Williams was driving and Stinnett was a passenger in a vehicle that fled a traffic stop and that the vehicle was later spotted by another officer near Martin Luther King Jr and South Avenues. Police say that as the fired officer approached, the vehicle started moving in reverse, and the officer opened fire. No weapon was found in the car. The officers firing was an out shortly after Lake County's chief prosecutor Said that the FBI will join Illinois State police and investigating that shooting.
