A board that reviews allegations of misconduct by Chicago police officers recommended Wednesday that an officer who shot and killed an unarmed black woman in 2012 be fired.

The Independent Police Review Authority found that Officer Dante Servin violated the department's "deadly force policy by discharging a firearm into a crowd, striking Rekia Boyd, an innocent bystander," Chief Administrator Scott M. Ando said in a statement.

The board also said Servin made inconsistent statements to detectives, county prosecutors and the authority. The recommendation now goes to Superintendent Garry McCarthy, who will review it and decide whether to make the same recommendation to the Chicago Police Board, which makes disciplinary decisions.
