On September 15, 2017 at 10:45 in the morning, Officer Robert Choyce of the Prince William County Police Department fatally shot 15 year old Rubin Urbina yielding a crowbar. Choyce fired his weapon twice, striking Rubin in the chest both times.
According to reports, Rubin had called the police on himself as he was struggling with a psychotic episode.
When the police arrived, they ordered Rubin to drop a crowbar. 15 year old Rubin did not comply. The police then shot him. Rubin died on the scene.
Officer Robert Choyce is a world champion marksman, placing second overall in the 2015 World Police and Fire Games in clay shooting, and first on the clay shooting team. Clay shooting requires the marksman to strike and annihilate a moving target.
And yet just four days later, Prince William County prosecutor Paul Ebert determined Choyce was justified in murdering Rubin Urbina.
When the county takes four days to investigate the murder of a child at the hands of their police, one has to wonder what else are they covering up?
Robert Choyce resides at 14202 Saint Clair Dr., Gainesville, VA 20155 with his wife Ashley.
