MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. (AP) -- Gaston County prosecutors say they will not pursue charges against two Mount Holly police officers who shot and wounded a Charlotte man during a traffic stop earlier this year.

The district attorney's made the decision after reviewing a State Bureau of Investigation report on the February shooting.
 
Police say they tried to pull over Jmar Demontae Davis in a traffic stop. Police say Davis put his hand on a gun in the car after he stopped.
 
Officers fired several shots. Davis recovered from his wounds.
 
He's been charged with two counts of assault with a gun on an officer. He is scheduled for trial Oct. 7 in Gastonia.
