Chicago Police Superintendent Moves to Fire Cop in Rekia Boyd Shooting

Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has moved to fire Detective Dante Servin for fatally wounding a 22-year-old woman while off duty in 2012.

A department spokeswoman confirmed the news Monday night. McCarthy’s decision comes two months after a recommendation from the Independent Police Review Authority to do so.

The Authority, which probes the most serious allegations of misconduct against Chicago police officers, recommended that Servin be fired for shooting and killing Rekia Boyd in an alleyway behind his home.

Servin was acquitted in Cook County criminal court on involuntary manslaughter charges in her death.
