JUST IN: Former Fairfax Police officer indicted for murder in shooting death of John Geer

John Geer
FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) — Former Fairfax police officer Adam Torres has been indicted for second-degree murder in the shooting death of John Geer, an unarmed Springfield man who was standing in his own doorway talking with police when he was shot two years ago.

"We feel that justice is finally prevailing," Don Geer, John Geer's father, told ABC7 News by phone. "We figured that with patience it would come around. It’s a shame it took this long to get here. It’s another step in the right direction. Part of the healing process. It's been a long, long time to get to this point."

Don Geer says Fairfax County police called him several hours ago to tell him about the indictment.

About time but at least it is finally happening. Now only thousands left to indict.

How about bail? Bet he doesn't put out a dime. Or even property.
