” A Garland police officer was fired this morning after an investigation into an Aug. 31 shooting in which he shot 41 times at a fleeing suspect.
Authorities say Officer Patrick Tuter shot and killed Michael Vincent Allen of Wylie after a 30-minute high-speed chase that began in Garland and ended in a Mesquite cul-de-sac. The 25-year-old suspect was unarmed at the time.
The seven-year veteran of the force, who said that he felt threatened when he opened fire on Allen’s pickup, had been under investigation by Garland police internal affairs ever since last fall’s shooting.”
