No charges will be filed against law enforcement after they shot and killed a man in Jamestown in February.
The Stutsman County State’s Attorney and North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation have closed the investigation, saying law enforcement used restraint and self control in the line of duty.
The case stems from a pursuit of a man accused of driving with a suspended license, when he didn’t not pull over for a traffic stop, a low speed chase began.
Stutsman County Sheriff’s Deputies and the Highway Patrol attempted to apprehend 27-year-old Michael Schieffer.
After crashing his vehicle, Schieffer walked towards law enforcement and is accused of firing a shot at officers.
Officers shot and killed Schieffer during the exchange.
The three officers involved will return to duty this week.
