The Chicago Police Board voted 5-3 in clearing Officer Brandon Ternand of all wrongdoing in fatally shooting a teen in the back of the head during a foot pursuit nearly six years ago, according to the Chicago Tribune.

According to records, 15-year-old Dakota Bright was not armed when he was shot, but officers recovered a .22-caliber revolver in a front yard near where the chase began.

The decision means that Ternand won’t be fired or face any discipline for the shooting. He will be allowed to return to active duty and be given back pay for the nearly one year he was suspended without pay.
