SARASOTA — A Sarasota police officer used a law enforcement database to retrieve the address of a man feuding with her cousin, which led to a violent home invasion attack earlier this year, according to an internal affairs report released on Friday.

Sarasota police officer Katrina Young was fired Friday after a yearlong inquiry showed that she misused a driver's license database and later lied to detectives investigating the home invasion.
