A Dallas police officer was fired today after an internal investigation concluded that she violated the department's deadly force policy when she shot a 19-year-old carjacking suspect.

Senior Cpl. Amy Wilburn was among several other police officers facing disciplinary hearings before Police Chief David Brown. She lost her job in connection with the Dec. 9 shooting of Kelvion Walker.

An independent witness has said the officer shot Walker even though he had both hands in the air and showed no signs of having a weapon.
