MPD officer involved in fatal shooting suspended again

MEMPHIS, TN – (WMC-TV) – Memphis Police officer Terrance Shaw, who shot and killed a teen in September, was allowed back to work last week on non-enforcement status.  Director Toney Armstrong said it is customary with many officers on administrative leave.

“We put them in places like the Real Time Crime Center where they can watch cameras, take reports, answer phones, and things like that,” said Armstrong.  “But they have no responsibilities as far an enforcement.”

But Armstrong told Action News 5 Thursday night that officer Shaw had already been suspended again.

“He’s off duty again,” said Armstrong.  “For something else.”
