Police Officer Indicted for Shooting Black Teen

Officer Richard Haste, a Bronx cop, has been indited for shooting and killing an unarmed teen. He is expected to surrender at the Bronx District Attorney’s office.

The teenager, Ramarley Graham, was allegedly shot in his apartment bathroom while trying to flush marijuana down the toilet.

The police officers allegedly claimed that they shot the 18 year old because they thought he had a gun.

The 30 year old officer, Richard Haste, reportedly joined the NYPD four years ago. He is said to have never received specialized training for the narcotics unit even though that was where he was assigned to work.

The DA’s office has yet to comment on the shooting and the subsequent indictment.
