A white officer who fatally shot a black Texas teenager last week at a Dallas-area car dealership has been fired after making a series of troubling decisions, Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said on Tuesday. Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old college football player at Angelo State University, became the latest unarmed black man to die at the hands of a white police officer after officials said he was seen on security surveillance tape vandalizing cars at an auto dealership in Arlington. Taylor was shot multiple times by Arlington police officer Brad Miller, 49, who was still undergoing training with the department, police said.
