Antwon Rose shooting: East Pittsburgh officer charged with criminal homicide – CNN

New details, included in the criminal complaint against [East Pittsburgh police Officer Michael] Rosfeld, indicate Antwon was shot in his face, right arm and the middle of his back. It also states that Antwon was in a car suspected in an earlier shooting but did not appear to be the shooter, and that Rosfeld made inconsistent statements about whether he believed Antwon had a gun.

…Allegheny County District Attorney Steve Zappala said he believes Rosfeld acted “recklessly and without justification,” and thus, the evidence supports charges of manslaughter and third-degree murder, and Zappala said his office has a “right to argue murder in the first,” which the state code classifies as an “intentional killing.”

“I find that Rosfeld’s actions were intentional,” Zappala said, emphasizing that Antwon was not armed. “He was not acting to prevent death or serious bodily injury.”
