The Milwaukee Police Department has fired the officer who fatally shot Sylville Smith, following an investigation into an unrelated sexual assault case, Time reports.
Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown was terminated, effective Monday, after a Milwaukee Police Department Internal Affairs investigation into a criminal complaint filed against the officer.
Last week, a man reported to Milwaukee police that “he had been sexually assaulted by Heaggan-Brown while off-duty.”
“The investigation found Heaggan-Brown to be in violation of the Milwaukee Police Code of Conduct, Core Value- Integrity that states ‘Department members shall obey local ordinances and state and federal laws, whether on or off-duty’ and ‘Whether on or off duty, department members shall not behave in such a way that a reasonable person would expect that discredit could be brought upon the department, or that it would create the appearance of impropriety or corruptive behavior,’” Milwaukee police said in a statement.
The assault allegedly occurred just two days after Heaggan-Brown fatally shot Sylville Smith.
