VIDEO: Grand Jury Says New Jersey Officers Justified in Fatal Shooting

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.
