Three Shots in the Back...
Antwon Rose was fatally shot by East Pittsburgh police Officer Michael Rosfeld on June 19 after a traffic stop near Grandview Avenue and Howard Street. Rose, 17, had been a passenger in a car that matched the description of one involved in a drive-by shooting in North Braddock about 15 minutes earlier.
Rose, a Woodland Hills High School honors student who was an English class shy of graduating, was unarmed when he was shot. The shooting led to numerous protests across the region and has gained nationwide attention.
Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. charged Rosfeld with homicide on June 27.
