Zappala to seek death penalty in officer killing

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala will seek the death penalty against Christian Bey, accused in the fatal shooting of off-duty Pittsburgh Police Officer Calvin Hall in Homewood back on July 14, reported KDKA-TV.
The District Attorney’s Office says it is seeking the death plenty for three main reasons:
  • Officer Hall was a peace officer and public servant,
  • Bey allegedly committed the killing during a felony,
  • Bey allegedly created a grave risk of death for other people. 
Officer Hall was rushed to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, but died on a few days later on July 17.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Officer determined Officer Hall died from gunshot wounds to his back and ruled his death a homicide.
