The city has fired the Albuquerque Police Department officer involved in a deadly crash. 

Officer Jonathan McDonnell last week in a deposition said he was driving too fast down Eubank before crashing into an Albuquerque family in 2017. 

Six-year-old Joel Anthony Mumaw was killed. 

His mother is suing the city. 

Officer McDonnell has been involved in at least six driving related incidents in his decade as an officer. 

Wednesday the city fired him, saying he was not given a chance to resign.
