(CBS Seattle) — The Marysville police officer whose daughter was killed by his unattended gun was fired Monday, according to KIRO TV.
Derek Carlile’s son accidentally shot his younger sister Jenna in March 2012. The children were left unattended in the family van, where Carlile had left his loaded, unsecured .38-caliber service revolver.
He was charged with second-degree manslaughter, but the charges were dismissed in November and Carlile remained on the job.
The findings of a police department internal affairs investigation led to his termination Monday, KIRO TV reported.
In a release, the city of Marysville said it would make no further comments on Carlile’s termination because it is a personnel matter.
