    Chicago police officer Gildardo Sierra, 32, admitted that he drank “multiple beers” before killing Flint Farmer in June, 2011 and has settled a civil lawsuit with Farmer’s estate for an undisclosed amount, reports the Chicago Tribune.

    It was Sierra’s second fatal shooting in a 6 month period.

    Chicago Tribune reports:

    A video of the incident shows Officer Gildardo Sierra firing three shots into Flint Farmer’s back as the Chicago man lay bleeding on a parkway early on June 7, 2011. The incident was the third shooting by Sierra in six months — and the second fatality, records show.

    [...]

    The Police Department ruled the Farmer shooting justified, but Superintendent Garry McCarthy later told the Tribune that he considers the case “a big problem” and that the officer involved should not have been on the street given his history of shootings.
