Attorney: Superintendent Rules Police Shooting Justified


An attorney representing an officer accused of an unjustified fatal shooting in 2015 says Superintendent Eddie Johnson has ruled the shooting justified.

Joel Brodsky, attorney for Robert Rialmo, who shot a bat-wielding youth after responding to a domestic disturbance call, said Johnson “totally rejected COPA’s findings and has stated that Officer Rialmo was justified in shooting Quintonio LeGrier in self-defense.”
