AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Officials have confirmed that an Augusta University public safety officer found to have used force more than his peers over a three-year period is no longer employed by the school.

University spokeswoman Christen Carter tells local media in Augusta that Officer Wesley Martin’s employment ended Monday. Carter would not say if Martin had resigned or was fired. She also said she did not have additional details for why Martin was placed on administrative leave Sept. 15.

An investigation in 2014 by The Augusta Chronicle found that Martin deployed his stun gun 19 times and shocked 13 people from 2010 to 2013, which was double that of any other university officer.

A performance appraisal conducted in April found that Martin met all the expectations for his position.
