A former rookie San Francisco police officer has been charged with manslaughter for fatally shooting a man through the window of a moving police car in 2017, District Attorney Chesa Boudin said Monday.

Christopher Samayoa was four days out of the Police Academy when he shot 42-year-old Keita O’Neil in the head during a police pursuit near the Alice Griffith housing projects on Dec. 1, 2017.
