MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's U.S. attorney says no federal civil rights charges will be filed against two Minneapolis police officers in last fall's shooting death of a black man.
Andrew Luger says there is insufficient evidence to support charges against the officers, who had a lethal confrontation with 24-year-old Jamar Clark last November.
Luger is the second prosecutor to decline to file charges in Clark's death, following Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman's announcement in March.
Clark's death set off weeks of protests on the city's north side, where some witnesses said Clark was handcuffed when he was shot. Freeman said forensic evidence backed up the officers' account that Clark was not handcuffed and that he had his hand on an officer's gun when he was shot.
