DALLAS (AP) — A former police officer in Mesquite is appealing his firing for use-of-force violations in the shooting of a black man who was mistaken for a thief while trying to unlock his own truck.

Mesquite Police Chief Charlie Cato said during a news conference Thursday that Derick Wiley is in the process of appealing his firing. He was dismissed for three violations of the department’s policies.

A grand jury indicted Wiley Wednesday on an aggravated assault charge in the non-fatal shooting of Lyndo Jones on Nov. 8. He turned himself in and was released on $300,000 bond.

Police have said Jones was shot twice during a scuffle with officers, but Cato clarified Thursday that Wiley was the only officer on scene when the shots were fired.
