An individual arbitrator says the decision to terminate former SWAT Sniper Wade Lee stands.Lee is the former Lubbock Police Officer who fired the shot that killed Sergeant Kevin Cox during a botched SWAT operation in the July 2001.

Lee filed an appeal in May, asking the city to reinstate him to the Lubbock Police force. The appeal resulted in three days of hearings. Monday, the city received a fax from the arbitrator saying Lee's suspension was the appropriate action, and that Lee's appeal was denied.
