For the first time in ten years, a Kansas City Police Department officer is being indicted for the non-fatal shooting of 34 yr old, Anthony Contreras, on June 24, 2014. While “conducting a warrant check” at 2:30am, Officer Jacob Ramsey shot Mr. Contreras, who was unarmed and running away, in the face. The shooting occurred in the back yard of a nearby residence. The man they were looking for was not found.

It was announced,on Feb. 20th that Jacob Ramsey will be indicted on charges of first degree assault and criminal action. While making the announcement, KCPD Chief Darryl Forté said he has the “utmost respect” for Officer Ramsey (yes, his exact words). There have been 53 fatal shootings by the KCPD in the last ten years. Not one of them resulted in an indictment.
