NYPD officer pleads not guilty to manslaughter

NEW YORK (AP) — An NYPD officer has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter charges in the shooting earlier this year of an unarmed suspect in his Bronx home.

Officer Richard Haste was arraigned Wednesday in the death of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham.

The courtroom was filled with fellow officers, relatives of the teen and their supporters.

The shooting stemmed from an NYPD investigation in February of street corner drug dealing. Police pursued Graham into his home. 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.
