(Pittsburgh) — Gunshots were fired into the law office of former East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld’s attorney, hours after Rosfeld was acquitted of shooting an unarmed black teenager last year.
Lawyer Patrick Thomassey tells WTAE-TV on Saturday he was called after midnight about shots fired into the Monroeville building.
Thomassey tells the station he wasn’t hurt and found three to four bullet holes.
A jury cleared Rosfeld of criminal homicide charges Friday after Rosfeld testified about shooting to death 17-year-old Antwon Rose II.
Rose ran from a vehicle Rosfeld had pulled over while investigating a drive-by shooting.
Protesters marched through parts of Pittsburgh after the verdict, but the mayor’s office says they have no reports of arrests or property damage.
No protests were seen Saturday morning.
