The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo, PLLC Team
Angel Alvarez holds his son, Angel, Jr., as he leaves Manhattan Supreme Court with supporters this afternoon after a grand jury declined to indict him on charges of gun possession. Alvarez was shot 23 times by police officers who responded to an August 8, 2010 shooting incident in which Luis Soto was killed. Cops testified that they saw Alvarez holding a gun, but he claimed he had grabbed it from Soto in self-defense. Original Filename: hermann03021115.JPG
