— An fired Raleigh police officer lost her appeal to return to the department.

The Raleigh Civil Service Commission heard a motion Thursday to reverse its decision to fire former officer Michelle Peele.

Peele shot and killed a man she says was trying to steal her personal vehicle. Raleigh police said Peele violated the department's deadly force policy.
