US police officer charged with murder after killing Black motorist

The charges were announced weeks after Lyoya was killed following a chaotic traffic stop on April 4.

A Michigan police officer who killed Patrick Lyoya with a shot to the back of the Black man's head has been charged with second-degree murder.

Prosecutor Chris Becker announced the charges Thursday against Grand Rapids Officer Christopher Schurr, weeks after Lyoya was killed following a chaotic traffic stop on April 4.

The 26-year-old Lyoya was on the ground when he was killed.

A bystander recorded the shooting on cell phone video.

Schurr, who is white, told Lyoya that he stopped his car because the license plate didn't match the vehicle.

Roughly a minute into the stop, Lyoya began to run after he was asked to produce a driver's license.

Schurr caught him quickly, and the two struggled across a front lawn. The officer demanded that Lyoya "let go" of Schurr's Taser before he fired the fatal shot.
