SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — Federal criminal civil rights charges will not be filed against police officers in Michigan, stemming from the deadly shooting of a homeless, mentally ill man.
The Justice Department, U.S. attorney's office and the FBI say they don't have "sufficient evidence of willful misconduct" by the officers in Milton Hall's shooting in July 2012. Hall was shot 11 times during a confrontation in a parking lot.
Police have claimed Hall was holding a knife and moving toward an officer and police dog when he was shot.
Federal officials said in a release Tuesday that they reviewed results of a criminal probe by state police, Michigan attorney general and Saginaw County prosecutor as part of their investigation.
Officials say evidence included witness statements and videos from police car dashboard cameras and cellphones.
