No criminal charges will be filed against the two Bridgeton, N.J., police officers who said they "feared for their lives" the night they shot at and killed Jerame C. Reid during a December traffic stop.
The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office announced the grand jury decision Thursday, the Daily Journal reports.
The conclusion of an eight-month investigation into the deadly police encounter produced the most detailed account yet, corroborating the actions taken by city police officers Braheme L. Days and Roger W. Worley, who fired a total of eight shots at Reid on Dec. 30.
Both officers expressed feeling "imminent danger" during the confrontation with Reid, who was a passenger in a car driven by Leroy Tutt of Long Branch. The car initially was pulled over for running a stop sign and was later found to have a handgun inside the glove compartment with DNA matching Reid's, the report said.
