NYPD officer surrenders to face shooting charges

NEW YORK — An New York City police officer has surrendered to face charges in the fatal shooting earlier this year of an unarmed suspect in a Bronx home.

Attorney Stuart London says he has been told that Officer Richard Haste will be charged with manslaughter. He had no further comment.

Officer Haste was awaiting arraignment Wednesday in the death of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham.

The shooting stemmed from an NYPD investigation in February of street-corner drug dealing. Police pursued Graham into his home before he was shot once at close range as his grandmother and 6-year-old brother stood nearby.

The NYPD and Bronx prosecutors have declined to comment.
