Locals Won’t Charge FBI Agent in Connection With Fatal New Orleans Shooting

An FBI agent who fatally shot a suspect during a sting operation won’t face state charges from the locals, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro said this weekend that local prosecutors don’t have jurisdiction over the agent.

“When a federal agent is acting in the course and scope of his employment as a federal law enforcement officer, the state lacks jurisdiction to charge that law enforcement officer with a crime unless there’s evidence that the law enforcement officer was acting with malice,” Chris Bowman, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said. “We saw no evidence of that, so we lacked jurisdiction to proceed.”

Bowman turned over the case to the U.S. attorney.

The June 2013 shooting remains under investigation.
