EAST PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) — A white police officer was charged Wednesday with criminal homicide for shooting to death an unarmed black teenager who fled a traffic stop after being pulled over on suspicion of involvement in a drive-by shooting.

The charge against East Pittsburgh Officer Michael Rosfeld is outlined in court documents. The 30-year-old turned himself in Wednesday morning, his attorney said. He was arraigned and faces a July 6 hearing. The district attorney's office did not immediately return a call for comment.

Rosfeld is charged in the June 19 death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. He had been sworn in just hours before the shooting but had been working at the police department for two to three weeks.
