A police officer will be prosecuted on manslaughter charges in the shooting death of Ramarley Graham, an 18-year-old who was killed by a single police bullet in his bathroom after a team of narcotics officers broke into his Bronx home, three people briefed on the charges said Monday.

The detectives were later acquitted……two other police officers radioed colleagues and said they believed Mr. Graham was carrying a gun in his waistband as he walked toward his home in the Wakefield section of the Bronx. Based on that observation, Officer Haste rushed to the scene and broke into the apartment where Mr. Graham lived. He confronted the young man in the bathroom and fired a single, fatal shot, the police have said.

They are mighty onpleasant; but, as I manages business, I generally avoids ‘em, sir. Now, what if you get the girl off for a day, or a week, or so; then the thing’s done quietly, – all over before she comes home. Your wife might get her some ear-rings, or a new gown, or some such truck, to make up with her.”
