(KMOV)-- The St. Louis Police Department confirms that one of their own police officers did indeed take and leak a picture of dead shooting suspect Carlos Boles.
The officer admitted to taking and forwarding the photo.
The officer is a member of the SWAT team and is now being investigated by the department. The discipline for the officer will be determined at the conclusion of the Internal Affairs investigation. In the meantime, Chief Dan Isom has ordered that the officer be taken off of the SWAT Team.
The department is also looking to see if any other officers were involved.
Boles was shot and killed by officers when they tried to take him in custody at his St. Louis home a couple of weeks ago.
