COLUMBUS (AP) -- A grand jury voted on Friday not to indict a white Columbus police officer in the fatal shooting of a black 13-year-old boy after a suspected robbery last year.
The Franklin County grand jury was considering whether it should indict Officer Bryan Mason in the September 2016 shooting of Tyre King. Police have said Mason shot the teen after he pulled a BB gun that looked like a real firearm from his waistband during a foot pursuit.
A county coroner said Tyre died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso.
Because Tyre was shot on the left side, the results indicate he was running away at the time and not posing a threat to police, family attorney Sean Walton said. The medical examiner the family hired reached same conclusion.
