WELLSTON, Mo (KMOV.com) -- G. Thomas Walker has been “suspended indefinitely” by the Mayor Linda Whitfield. This is the second time this year that the chief has been suspended.

In February, he was re-instated by the city council because the mayor had acted without the council’s approval. 

Reportedly, this most recent suspension also circumvented the council.

The council is reportedly trying to call an emergency meeting on Thursday to reinstate Walker. 

There was no reason given for the chief’s termination. News 4 will continue to update this story as details become available.
