Alabama officer charged with murder for shooting unarmed black man

A police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man on Thursday in Montgomery, Alabama, will face murder charges, a prosecutor announced Wednesday, the Associated Press reported. The officer, Aaron Smith, was white, and the victim, 58-year-old Greg Gunn, was black, leading many to suspect the shooting may have been racially motivated. A warrant was issued for Smith’s arrest and he was in custody Wednesday, Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey said.

Gunn was fatally shot early Thursday morning while walking to his mother’s home in Mobile Heights. Smith later told law enforcement he thought Gunn looked “suspicious,” according to the Washington Post. Read more.
