MILWAUKEE (AP) — A prosecutor says he won’t file charges against a white former Milwaukee police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced Monday that Christopher Manney won’t face any charges in the death of Dontre Hamilton in April. Chisholm says that “Manney’s use of force in this incident was justified self-defense and that defense cannot be reasonably overcome to establish a basis to charge Officer Manney with a crime.” Manney said he moved to frisk Hamilton in a downtown park and Hamilton resisted, striking the officer with his own baton.

Manney then opened fire, hitting Hamilton 14 times.
