ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Former Rochester Police Chief La'Ron Singletary is in the running to become Austin's next police chief. 

The Austin America-Statesman reports Singletary is among the dozens of candidates.

The newspaper includes a brief description of each candidate, and Singletary's sentence mentions that he was "let go last year following an investigation into the death of a man in police custody."

Mayor Lovely Warren fired him in September following the death of Daniel Prude.

Singletary filed a lawsuit against the City of Rochester in December, claiming Warren asked him to lie about Prude's death. City officials called the lawsuit "frivolous."
