Akai Gurley

A judge ruled Thursday that a manslaughter conviction will stand against a former New York Police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Black man in a public housing stairwell.

The rookie police officer who shot and killed unarmed Brooklyn man Akai Gurley has been recommended by the lead prosecutor in the case to not serve any prison time.

NYPD officials are investigating the Police Academy CPR instructor who trained the officer convicted of fatally shooting Akai Gurley. They've taken her gun and shield.

Peter Liang and Shaun Landau responded to a $50 million lawsuit by blaming the victim.

Before getting into the rap game, West attended the American Academy of Art and Chicago State University.

Rookie NYPD officer Peter Liang, who gunned down unarmed Akai Gurley in the darkened stairwell of a Brooklyn public housing project, was found guilty of manslaughter late Thursday.

If found guilty, 28-year-old police officer Peter Liang could face up to 15 years behind bars.

Prosecutors used the testimony to further prove that Liang was too busy worrying about his job to help save Gurley.

Officer Peter Liang, the Asian rookie NYPD cop who is accused of shooting and killing Black unarmed Brooklyn man Akai Gurley, has opted to have his case heard by a jury.

The officer who shot and killed 28-year-old Brooklyn man Akai Gurley in November 2014 has chosen to face a city jury instead of a bench trial typical of these cases.
