The New York Police Department is forcing out three of the five officers involved in the 2006 fatal shooting of Sean Bell.
Bell was killed five years ago by undercover NYPD officers while leaving a Jamaica, Queens, strip club just hours before his wedding.
Detective Gescard Isnora, who fired the first of the 50 shots that killed Bell and injured two of his friends, will be fired and not allowed to get a pension.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly enforced the determination of an NYPD administrative trial judge in firing Isnora.
Two other detectives – Michael Oliver and Marc Cooper – will hand in their resignations to the Police Department's pension board on Monday.
Officer Michael Carey, who was found not guilty of improperly firing his weapon, will be allowed to remain on the force.
The three officers losing their jobs were found not guilty on all charges in a criminal trial in 2008.
The city paid Bell's family and his two injured friends $7 million as a result of civil lawsuit.
