Mother of 18-year-old shot by NYC police officer in 2012 meets with US attorney studying case


NEW YORK (AP) -- The parents of a black 18-year-old man shot to death by a white New York City police officer in 2012 have met with a federal prosecutor.

Constance Malcolm, who said she was grateful federal authorities, met Wednesday with family members of her son, Ramarley Graham. He died after he was shot once in the chest in February 2012 in a tiny bathroom in the home where he lived with his grandmother and other relatives.

The officer who shot him said he did so because he thought he was going to be shot. No weapons were found though. Federal authorities announced a year ago they would review the case for any civil rights violations.

The mother said she hopes the federal review leads to a grand jury taking up the case.
