Probationary Cop Now Gone

But Corey Jones is dead –

(CNN)A Florida police officer who shot and killed a man whose car had broken down last month has been fired, though an investigation that will determine whether charges will be filed isn’t finished, the department that employed him said Thursday.

Palm Beach Gardens police Officer Nouman Raja, who was in plainclothes when he shot 31-year-old Corey Jones along a highway in the early morning of October 18, had been on paid administrative leave since the shooting.

Raja was hired in April, and like all new hires in the department, was on a probationary period in which he could be fired for any reason, the city said in a news release, citing its contract with a police union.
