Medical examiner rules Akai Gurley shooting was a homicide

NEW YORK (AP) — Politicians say they’re meeting with prosecutors following the New York City medical examiner’s ruling that the police killing of an unarmed man was a homicide.

The medical examiner’s office said in a statement Monday that its classification in the death of Akai Gurley “does not imply any statement about intent or culpability.”

Police Commissioner William Bratton previously called Gurley’s death in a Brooklyn staircase on Thursday an apparent accident that claimed a “totally innocent” life.

City Councilwoman Inez Barron and Assemblyman-elect Charles Barron planned a news conference Monday afternoon.

Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson has called the shooting “deeply troubling” and said it warrants “an immediate, fair and thorough investigation.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio met with some of Gurley’s relatives Friday evening.
