The City of Inglewood said this week several officers under investigation for the fatal shootings of a man and woman reported unconscious in a stopped car – were no longer employed by the City’s police department.

Mayor James Butts said in a statement few details could be released because police discipline investigations are kept secret from the public by state law.

As many as five officers were said to have fired into the car on February 21, 2016, after the officers said they saw a gun in the lap of Kisha Michael.

Michael was killed along with Marquintan Sandlin, who was in the driver’s seat of the car that was stopped near the intersection of Manchester Blvd. and Inglewood Avenue.

The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office is still examining the case to decide if any of the officers’ actions were criminal.
