THE BRONX - Ramarley Graham's parents spoke exclusively with News 12 The Bronx today about the indictment of an NYPD officer in the death of their son. It is the first time they have spoken out since the announcement of the indictment.
Graham's family said that they have been waiting for this day to come since the incident occurred.
Graham, 18, was shot to death in his home by officer Richard Haste back in February. Haste said he believed that he was pursuing an armed felon who was attempting to run from the police. Graham was unarmed at the time.
Haste is expected to be in court Wednesday morning.
