A District Heights police officer who shot a handcuffed man in the back as he fled from the officer’s custody was indicted Thursday on attempted murder in connection with the shooting, Prince George’s County prosecutors said.
Sgt. Johnnie Riley, an eight-year department veteran, also faces misconduct in office and assault charges stemming from the September shooting that paralyzed 26-year-old Kalvin Kyle from the chest down.
According to District Heights police, Sgt. Riley had arrested Mr. Kyle after he was stopped on a stolen motorcycle in the 6200 block of Foster Street. Mr. Kyle was placed in the back of a police cruiser but escaped and was shot in the back as he fled, said his attorney, Christopher Griffiths.
