(Memphis) A Memphis police officer who was off duty with pay then reinstated is once again off duty with pay.

That officer is Terrance Shaw, who shot and killed a 15-year-old boy in September. 

Shaw said the shooting was in self-defense.

Shaw was put behind a desk earlier this week while the investigation into the shooting continued.
