CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio police officer who shot an unarmed driver after a high-speed chase earlier this year will not be charged.

A prosecutor says a Medina County grand jury on Tuesday declined to indict Strongsville Officer Jason Miller in the March 7 shooting of 37-year-old Roy Evans Jr.

Police dispatch logs show the chase began about 20 miles south of Cleveland and ended 14 minutes later after Evans' van went across spike stripes laid across a highway.

Dashcam video shows Miller shooting Evans within seconds after opening his door. Officers told authorities Evans wouldn't follow orders and appeared to reach for something.

Evans' girlfriend and her three children also were in the van but were not harmed.

Strongsville police say they are conducting an internal review of the case.
