LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Criminal charges will not be filed against two Jeffersontown police officers who fired at a robbery suspect and killed him.
Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine released a statement Tuesday saying he cleared officers Dwight Taylor and Torray Walker of any wrongdoing in the death of Roger D. Hall Jr.
Police say Hall was shot to death after he defied their orders to show his hands. When he reached inside his hoodie's pocket, officers opened fire. Two of Tyler's bullets struck Hall, who died soon after.
Police suspected Hall had just attempted to rob a man. Witnesses had reported that Hall was armed with a gun. He was found with a BB gun.
Hall was white. The officers are black.
