'Totally Innocent' Unarmed 28yo 'Accidentally' Shot Dead by NYPD

A rookie NYPD officer “accidentally” shot and killed an unarmed African-American man in a staircase in a New York apartment block. It happened as Ferguson is tensely waiting for a grand jury decision on a police officer who shot Michael Brown.

Akai Gurley, 28, and his girlfriend Melissa Butler were entering a staircase on the seventh floor in Pink House project in Brooklyn late Thursday evening when two policemen came down from the eighth floor. Peter Liang and his partner, Shaun Landau were doing a top-to-bottom patrol. Liang, a rookie on probationary assignment, fired a shot in Gurley’s chest without a warning, Butler said.

“They didn’t present themselves or nothing and shot him,” Butler told DNAinfo New York. “As soon as he came in, the police opened the [door to the] eighth-floor staircase. They didn’t identify themselves at all. They just shot.”

Gurley and Butler tried to go down the stairs but reached only the fifth floor where Gurley lost consciousness. There a neighbor called an ambulance. Butler says the policemen did not come to help nor called the ambulance. Gurley, who has a 2-year-old son, was pronounced dead on arrival to hospital.

An NYPD spokesperson said the police department's internal affairs bureau is investigating the shooting. Liang has been placed on modified assignment and was relieved of both his badge and gun.

He didn't really fire a shot into his chest, though, did he? I read on some NYC news site that a round ricocheted off the wall and then hit the unarmed guy.

Either way, what a couple of dumbshits, and what a clusterfuck. Why in hell did they not assist him, nor call for an ambulance for him? Better question: Why did the Rookie "accidentally" fire his weapon in the first place? This is our pick of the litter for police officers these days??

He might get fired but I don't think they will prosecute him although they should. He will just use the same old excuse they all use and that would be he feared for his life. And before anyone says I am anti-cop I am not saying all police shootings are not justified because I believe most are. This was probably an accident but he should still be held responsible for his actions.
