RALEIGH, N.C. — All law enforcement involved in the non-fatal use of deadly force while capturing the suspect in Raleigh's mass shooting on Oct. 13 have been cleared, with no further investigation needed, Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman said in a statement on Monday.
Freeman said the initial request for the use of force criminal investigation by the NCSBI was in accordance with standard practice and procedure.
Freeman found that the actions by officers on scene were lawful and that no further investigation was necessary following a review of law enforcement videos, the crime scene report and other available evidence.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation has been asked to close the criminal investigation.
