The ex-police officer in Fairfax who fatally shot an unarmed man in 2013 pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter. The officer, Adam Torres, had been on desk duty and his name kept secret for nearly two years after the shooting. Family members had been given no explanation or information on the case until they filed a wrongful death suit, forcing the Fairfax County Police Department to release the department’s internal files. We speak with a Washington Post reporter who’s been covering the case.
