THE BRONX - The judge overseeing the Ramarley Graham shooting case says he's concerned with how things have been handled and may send the case back to the grand jury.

Officer Richard Haste says he shot 18-year-old Graham last year after fellow police officers told him that the teen was armed.

Months ago, a grand jury heard testimony from the officers who allegedly told Haste that Graham was armed. Apparently, the Bronx District Attorney told the jury not to consider the testimony, which concerns Bronx Supreme Court Justice Steven L. Barrett.

"What he heard may have informed what he did,” Barrett says. “At the very least, the grand jury should have the option to consider it.”

Haste faces manslaughter charges. His next court date is scheduled for May 15.
