NYPD, Housing Authority Complicit in Akai Gurley Death: Lawsuit



The characterisation here implies that Liang intentionally shot into the stairwell, which is a very different picture than was painted at the time. Then, the whole thing was characterised as a genuinely tragic accident, Liang, a new, minority cop in training having his gun out of the holster because of the unlighted stairwell, and the discharge being a result of trying to get the door open while holding the gun. And that he collapsed in uncontrollable tears when he learned what his unintended shot had done. That first story sounded more credible to me than this one does.
