A rookie officer in Texas has been fired after a fatal shooting last week.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has the story:

Brad Miller is off the job, following the shooting death of 19-year-old Christian Taylor, who police say was trying to break into a car dealership when he was shot by the former officer.

Miller is white, Taylor is black.

Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson explained what happened.

(Johnson) "In this instance, the corporal momentarily stopped to speak with another officer when Mr. Miller continued to advance into the building without his corporal's knowledge."

Taylor was shot four times.

Protesters gathered outside Arlington police headquarters late Tuesday, demanding Miller be charged.

Johnson says it will be up to a grand jury to decide if Miller faces criminal charges.
