Four Officers Arrested for Assaulting Undercover Cop at Protest
The indictment follows an investigation conducted by the FBI. The slain 24-year-old, Anthony Lamar Smith, was shot five times by Stockley. Police recovered a gun from Smith’s car, but found only Stockley’s DNA on it, leading many to believe that the firearm was planted. One hundred and forty people were mass arrested on October 3, 2017, after Stockley was found not guilty on charges of first-degree murder. The group included protesters, reporters and an undercover police officer. Protests were held in the city for days surrounding the verdict.
