NEW YORK (AP) - An indictment has been thrown out in the case against an NYPD police officer charged last year in the fatal shooting of an unarmed suspect in a Bronx home.

A judge found on Wednesday that prosecutors gave flawed instructions to a grand jury that indicted Officer Richard Haste.

The case isn't over because prosecutors were expected to present the case again to the grand jury.

The shooting of Ramarley Graham, 18, stemmed from an NYPD investigation of street-corner drug dealing. Police pursued Graham into his home before he was shot once at close range.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
