Shooting of Antwon Rose Jr.

Antwon Rose II was a 17-year-old African-American who was shot and killed in East Pittsburgh on June 19, 2018 by East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld, after he attempted to evade arrest by running from a car that was involved in a drive-by shooting 10 minutes earlier. Rose was unarmed when shot, and later died in McKeesport Hospital.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala stated that Rose had an empty 9-millimeter handgun magazine in his pocket, and officials stated there were two guns in the car, one being a 9-mm-caliber handgun and the other a .40-caliber handgun.The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published video footage showing Rose riding in the front passenger seat while Zaijuan Hester fired through the rear window behind him. Contradicting that video evidence, drive-by victim William Ross told investigators on January 17, 2019 that Rose was in fact the individual who had shot him: "The beef was between me and him, that car came by, he shot me, I ran to the store." Despite Ross' testimony and the gun under Rose's seat matching the empty magazine on his person, prosecutors maintained Rose did not fire a weapon during the earlier drive-by shooting. For his part in that shooting, Hester pleaded guilty to multiple counts of firearms and aggravated assault charges.Rose had gunshot residue on his hands at the time he was shot, according to trial testimony from a scientist at the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office, and Rose's DNA was found on the 9mm pistol found under the passenger seat in which he was riding during the drive-by shooting. Rosfeld's attorney additionally claimed that Rose had stolen one of the handguns found in the car during an armed robbery of his employer just hours before he was shot, but this was ruled inadmissible by Judge Alexander Bicket given that information regarding the gun theft was unknown to Rosfeld at the time Rose was shot and killed.Two days of protests spurred by Rose's killing broke out in boroughs near East Pittsburgh and in Pittsburgh after his death.

Rosfeld was charged with criminal homicide, was arraigned, and had unsecured bail set at $250,000. His trial began on March 19, 2019 and concluded on March 22, 2019. Rosfeld was found not guilty of criminal homicide.
