On Friday, Grand Rapids Police Department Officer Christopher Schurr is due to appear in court in connection with a second-degree murder charge that has been brought against him.
The Michigan police officer who is accused of shooting and killing Patrick Lyoya in the back of the head during a traffic check earlier this year is due to make his first court appearance on Friday.
An officer with the Grand Rapids Police Department has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of a man in April who was just pulled over for a minor traffic violation. The deceased man was 26 years old. Chris Becker, the prosecutor for Kent County, has opted to bring charges against Lyoya even though his legal team has stated that their client had “gained custody” of the officer’s weapon.
