Two New York Police Department detectives involved in the 2006 shooting death of an unarmed man after his bachelor party have been forced to resign.
Marc Cooper and Michael Oliver quit the NYPD on Monday. Their resignations resolved disciplinary charges stemming from the slaying of Sean Bell. They'll still get their pensions.
The police department fired a third detective, Gescard Isnora (jes-KARD' ihs-NOR'-uh), on Friday after he lost his administrative case. A lieutenant is expected to resign on Tuesday.
The detectives shot and killed Bell and injured two friends following an altercation outside a Queens strip club where he had his bachelor party. Isnora claimed he opened fire first because he thought the men were trying to retrieve a gun.
All three detectives were acquitted of criminal charges at a non-jury trial in 2008.
