The case of a man charged in the death of a Toronto police officer has been put over to next month.

Umar Zameer, 31, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Const Jeffrey Northrup.

The 55-year-old police officer was struck by a car in a parking lot at Toronto City Hall on July 2 while investigating reports of a robbery in progress.

Police have alleged the collision was an intentional and deliberate act.

Zameer’s case was put over to Aug. 13 following a brief court hearing on Friday.

Northrup’s funeral was held last week and drew officers from across the country to Toronto.
