DA files homicide charges against SFPD officer in shooting death of Sean Moore
District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s office announced homicide charges today against San Francisco Police Officer Kenneth Cha following the 2017 shooting of Sean Moore. Moore, who was unarmed, died in 2020 from his injuries.
The prosecution marks the second time in San Francisco history that the District Attorney has filed homicide charges against an on-duty police officer. The first was in late 2020, when Boudin charged rookie officer Christopher Samayoa for shooting dead unarmed Keita O’Neil from out the window of his police car.
