Gwinnett Police Department officials recommended that former Sgt. George Gilson be terminated for the fatal shooting of an unarmed motorist, according to an internal investigation of the incident.

The report on the investigation, obtained Monday, determined that Gilson violated department policy when he fired his weapon from a moving vehicle. Gilson, who told investigators that he thought the victim was trying to hurt him, resigned earlier this month, forestalling any action on the report.
