A white police officer was charged with criminal homicide for shooting to death an unarmed black teenager who fled a traffic stop after being pulled over on suspicion of involvement in a drive-by shooting. The charge against East Pittsburgh Officer Michael Rosfeld is outlined in court documents. The 30-year-old Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, resident turned himself in this morning, according to his attorney. He has been arraigned and faces a July 6 hearing. Rosfeld is charged in the June 19 death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. Authorities have said Rose and another teen arrested this week fled after being pulled over on suspicion they were involved in a drive-by shooting. Rose was shot three times, leading to daily protests around Pittsburgh. Rosfeld has been on administrative leave since the shooting occurred.
