Arlington Police: Officer Who Shot Christian Taylor Fired for "Poor Judgment"

At a press conference on Tuesday, Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said the officer who fatally shot Christian Taylor on Friday has been terminated “for exercising poor judgment” and had no physical contact with the unarmed teen before firing.

This account contradicts an earlier version of the incident given by Johnson, who told The New York Times this weekend that two officers “struggled” with Taylor before the shooting.
