Two cops could face criminal charges for the fatal shooting of an unarmed teen drug suspect in The Bronx, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said yesterday.
The officer who fired the shot and his sergeant were stripped of their guns and badges and placed on desk duty while the Internal Affairs Bureau investigated the deadly shooting of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham.
“We are still evaluating the actions here,” the commissioner said. “The evidence will be presented to a grand jury.”
Kelly was clearly troubled by the cops’ actions.
“We see an unarmed person being shot. That always concerns us,” Kelly said. “The fact is that a young man’s life was taken.”
