MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A white Montgomery police officer was indicted Friday on a murder charge for the shooting death of an unarmed black man earlier this year.
The victim, Gregory Gunn, died February 25. Investigators say Gunn, 58, was hit with a stun gun three times, beaten with a baton and shot five times by Officer Aaron Smith. Smith actually fired his weapon seven times.
A grand jury reviewed evidence in the case and indicted Smith on the murder charge. The case will now go to trial.
