NYPD Officer Peter Liang, who shot an unarmed Brooklyn man to death in November by firing his gun up a dark stairwell in a housing project, was indicted on Tuesday, according to reports.
A formal announcement by District Attorney Kenneth Thompson is expected to be made Wednesday. It was unclear Tuesday afternoon if charges would include manslaughter.
Liang, who reportedly texted his union representative before calling for an ambulance after shooting Gurley in the chest on November 20, said he had fired his gun accidentally while patrolling the Louis H. Pink Houses in East New York.
