Judge Ayoub Issues Motion Approving Proceedings to Advance to Trial in Officer Schurr Case

Read Judge Ayoub’s motion to bindover former GRPD Officer Christopher Schurr for trial in the homicide of Patrick Lyoya below.

Key evidence was elicited by attorneys, including that Schurr was not fired due to any actions taken during the arrest or killing and instead faced termination because of charges being brought by the prosecution. It was also further determined that Lyoya disarmed Schurr of the taser and transferred it to his dominant hand while lifting Schurr ‘s feet off the ground.
