CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

We've learned of new information surrounding a deadly police shooting by a Cleveland cop working off-duty.

Officer Walt Thomas will have a hearing with the chief Thursday. Thomas will be questioned about working off-duty without permission.

Last week he was working part-time at Libations night club. He confronted two men shooting at each other before he shot and killed Aron Jones. A preliminary review of the actual shooting shows 'that' was justifed.

However Thomas, A 21-year veteran, has been on extended leave from the force.

Cleveland Police provided the following background information on Thomas:

  • Appointed to Division of Police  in June 19, 1990
