D.A. Oscar Grant “restrained and unarmed” when Mehserle shot him

Alameda County District Attorney Tom Orloff at press conference announcing murder charges against Johannes Mehserle for killing Oscar Grant

“At this point, what I feel the evidence indicates, is an unlawful killing done by an intentional act and from the evidence we have there’s nothing that would mitigate that to something lower than a murder.”

“Mehserle shot and killed Oscar Grant while Grant was restrained and unarmed.”
