Park Police Consider Charges In Ghaisar Case

(Fairfax, VA) — After a special grand jury indicted two Park Police officers on charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless discharge of a firearm, the U.S. Park Police says it is considering charges of its own. Officers Alejandro Amaya and Lucas Vinyard are facing a total of 15 years in prison if convicted of the charges brought against them by the grand jury in the 2017 death of Bijan Ghaisar. Ghaisar was shot and killed by officers following a pursuit on the George Washington Parkway that began when the 25-year-old fled from a crash scene.
