"A former police officer in Milwaukee was charged with homicide Thursday for fatally shooting a man in August, an incident that sparked days of violent unrest on the city's streets. Authorities said that while Sylville K. Smith was initially armed during his encounter with police, he had thrown his gun away and fallen to the ground when an officer fired a shot into his chest. Dominique Heaggan-Brown, the officer, is already facing charges of sexual assault and prostitution stemming from accusations made while demonstrations over Smith's shooting continued to roil Milwaukee."
