West Point Mayor Robbie Robinson and the Board of Selectmen unanimously accepted a motion made by West Point Police Cheif Avery Cook to terminate investigator Shaun Keller during a special called meeting Wednesday afternoon.

Cook said Keller was terminated for misconduct, but did not give any further details on the situation.

"It is an unfortunate situation," Mayor Robbie Robinson said. " The board had a qualm and unanimously decided to terminate him."

Robinson said WPPD is under investigation by an outside agency.

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood's office could not confirm or deny an active investigation into the WPPD.
