16 Year-Old Could Face Murder Charges In Detroit Cop Slaying

Officer Mason Samborski, 28, stopped 16 year-old Jonathan Belton on a traffic stop and found that Belton was unlicensed and had no insurance. While proceeding to take Belton to a supervised adult, the two wrestled and Samborski was killed after being shot in the head. Belton turned himself into police yesterday and is now facing murder charges, while Samborski leaves behind a wife and child. Thanks to the Detroit Free Press for the story, as the city of Detroit essentially lost two lives in what appears to be a senseless murder over the weekend.
