Police Officer Found Not Guilty in Shooting of 17-Year-Old

The Pittsburgh police officer charged in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Antwon Rose II was found not guilty by a jury on Friday.

That's according to the spokesman for the Allegheny County District Attorney.  Officer Michael Rosfeld was captured on video shooting Rose, who was unarmed, as he ran away during a traffic stop in June 2018.

The video went viral and spurred protests over the white officer's use of a deadly weapon against an unarmed black teen.  The jury deliberated for  four hours  before finding Rosfeld not guilty of all charges, which included murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter.

In response to the verdict, protesters gathered outside the courthouse.  The attorney for the Rose family said they will appeal the ruling.

He said: "It will have to be challenged, in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

It will have to continue to be challenged on a federal level." Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
