Three Honolulu police officers have been charged in connection with the deadly shooting of a 16-year-old boy.
The decision to prosecute a police officer will be made a week after the grand jury refuses to prosecute a police officer in connection with the April death of 16-year-old Iremamber Sykap.
KHNL-TV In Honolulu, prosecutors have reported indicting 42-year-old Jeffrey Thorne for his second murder. Zackary Ah Nee, 26, and Christopher Fredeluces, 40, face a second attempted murder.
If convicted, all three officers will face life imprisonment.
Honolulu Police Department says three police officers remain in the unit and are assigned to desk missions.
“I’m surprised that the prosecutor has announced that he will seek prosecution against police officers after a grand jury of citizens has decided not to prosecute them,” said Honolulu Interim Police Chief Raid Banick. It was. “This is very unusual and we are not aware that similar measures have been taken in the past. While waiting for a court decision, we protect and serve the community as usual. I will continue to do it. “
Police said Ilemanber was driving a stolen Honda associated with armed robbery, robbery, wallet snatching, and car theft, leading police to chase before the shooting on April 5.
Police refused to release police body camera footage from shooting.
KHNL reports that the public prosecutor’s office claims that there are some inconsistencies with police officers’ reports and allegations.
