NYPD police officer Peter Liang was indicted yesterday for the shooting death of 28-year-old Brooklyn man back in November 2014. According to reports, “..Akai Gurley was unarmed in the “pitch black” stairwell of the Louis H. Pink Houses project when he and police officer Liang crossed paths and the cop fired a single shot…”
Originally described as “accidental discharge” by NYPD Commissioner William Bratton, Kenneth Thompson, a Brooklyn District Attorney has gathered an investigation around the case. Liang, who was a rookie cop, was placed on probationary status and “modified assignment.” He’s currently facing negligent homicide, second-degree manslaughter, official misconduct and 15 years in prison. A Thompson spokeswoman couldn’t confirm the indictment and only shared the the matter was “precluded by grand jury secrecy.” He’s expected to turn himself in tonight or on Wednesday morning.
