LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Attorneys for a Little Rock police officer fired for fatally shooting a motorist say the officer’s reinstatement should go forward.
Attorneys for Officer Charles Starks asked a judge Tuesday to reject a request to stay his order that the officer be reinstated.
Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox last week reversed a city’s panel’s decision upholding Starks’ firing over the 2019 fatal shooting of Bradley Blackshire.
Starks fired at least 15 times through the windshield of a car Blackshire was driving in February.
Starks and another officer were attempting a motor vehicle stop at the time.
