A Grand Rapids judge announced Monday that a former Michigan police officer who killed an unarmed Black motorist will stand trial for murder.
A growing number of social media reports claim the Grand Rapids police officer who killed Patrick Lyoya following a traffic stop over an alleged misdemeanor moving violation is named Christopher Paul Schurr.
Autopsy results show the Grand Rapids cop who shot Patrick Lyoya "pressed" his gun into the back of the unarmed Black man's head while firing a single "contact shot," world-renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz said alongside Ben Crump.
Protests kicked off in Grands Rapids, Michigan, after the Grand Rapids Police Department released a video of an officer shooting a 26-year-old unarmed Black man in the head–the officer has not been charged.
Video footage has finally been released in the recent police shooting of an unarmed Black motorist in Michigan and confirms the officer shot him in the back of his head following a brief struggle in Grand Rapids.
The GoFundMe accounts for Christian Obumseli - who was stabbed to death by his white IG model girlfriend Courtney Clenney - and Patrick Lyoya - who was unarmed when he was shot in the head by a Grand Rapids cop - are receiving uneven monetary responses to the killings.
According to M-Live, the Grand Rapids Police Department placed the officer on administrative leave pending the internal investigation.
