An Illinois police chief announced Friday that an officer has been fired after they who shot a Black couple sitting inside their car, killing one person and injuring the other.

Waukegan Police Chief Wayne Walles said in a brief statement that the city had terminated the officer "for multiple policy and procedure violations,” without providing more details or the naming the officer.

The announcement came shortly after Lake County’s chief prosecutor announced that the FBI would join Illinois State Police in investigating the shooting, which resulted in the death of 19-year-old Marcellis Stinnette and left his girlfriend, Tafarra Williams, 20, injured.

State authorities had previously opened an investigation into wrongdoing by the officer in question, a five-year veteran of the suburban Chicago police force.

The FBI joined the efforts after County State Attorney Michael Nerheim requested that the bureau review the circumstances surrounding the incident.
