WASHINGTON (AP) - A District of Columbia fire lieutenant who commanded a station where a man collapsed across the street and didn’t receive care has submitted her retirement papers.

A spokesman for the city’s deputy mayor for public safety said Friday that Lt. Kellene Davis has filed for retirement.

Davis and another firefighter had been placed on administrative leave as city officials investigate the station’s response to the death of Medric Mills. Relatives say Mills went into cardiac arrest on Saturday afternoon in a shopping center parking lot and later died. They say several people went across the street to the station, but no firefighters or emergency medical workers walked over to help.

Mayor Vincent Gray has called the incident “an outrage.” He said those involved failed to show “common decency.”
