AUSTIN, Texas — Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo has fired police officer Wayne Williamson, an Iraq war veteran, for inappropriate use of deadly force. This is the first time the new chief has fired an officer.
Acevedo is expected to decide in the next several weeks whether another officer will be disciplined for fatally shooting a man outside an East Austin club in June.
