PITTSBURGH – Prosecutors will name extra witnesses to the stand within the trial of a white former East Pittsburgh police officer charged within the deadly taking pictures of an unarmed black teenager.
Michael Rosfeld’s trial continues Thursday into its third day in a Pittsburgh courtroom.
The primary two days of testimony included compelling statements from witnesses and neighbors, considered one of whom mentioned he heard Rosfeld panicking, repeatedly saying “I do not know why I shot him. I do not know why I fired.”
Rosfeld fired three bullets into 17-year-old Antwon Rose II after pulling over an unlicensed taxicab suspected to have been utilized in a drive-by taking pictures minutes earlier. Rose was a front-seat passenger within the cab and was shot as he fled.
The trial is predicted to take every week or extra.
