Officer Who Fatally Shot Unarmed Bronx Teen to Face NYPD Trial

The officer who fatally shot unarmed Bronx teen Ramarley Graham in 2012 inside his Bronx apartment will face a departmental trial, but no date has been set yet for the inquiry, the NYPD said.

Graham was shot and killed inside a bathroom in his apartment after he was chased by Officer Richard Haste and other officers. He was trying to flush a small amount of marijuana down a toilet when Haste shot him.

Haste, who is currently on modified duty, said he believed Graham, 18, had a gun when he fired, but no weapon was recovered, according to the DNAinfo.
