Bail revoked for Mark Dial, Philadelphia police officer charged in fatal shooting of Eddie Irizarry

Bail has been revoked for the Philadelphia police officer charged in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Eddie Irizarry.

Officer Mark Dial was charged with murder and was later released on $50,000 bail on September 8.

The district’s attorney’s office then filed a motion, saying granting Dial bail is inconsistent with the state constitution.

During a hearing on Tuesday, Judge Lillian Ransom revoked Dial’s bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 26.

In addition to murder, Dial also faces charges of voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangering another person, and official oppression.

Bodycam video of the August 14 shooting was released earlier this month. The video, from Dial’s body-worn camera, shows him getting out of the passenger’s side of a police SUV and running to a car with Irizarry behind the wheel.
