NY cop indicted for manslaughter
in killing of Ramarley Graham
NEW YORK, June 13—Richard Haste, the undercover narcotics cop who shot and killed Ramarley Graham, turned himself in this morning after being indicted for first- and second-degree manslaughter by a Bronx grand jury.

Haste killed Graham, an 18-year-old Black youth, in the bathroom of his apartment in full view of his 6-year-old brother and his grandmother. Cops claim they broke the door down and shot Graham because they received a report he had a gun and ran away from them. Graham was filmed on surveillance video walking, not running, into his building and was unarmed.

Hundreds have demonstrated demanding the cops who killed Graham be arrested and charged.

“The whole family will be at the arraignment,” Jeffrey Emdmin, lawyer for the Graham family, told the New York Daily News.
