FBI agents won’t be charged after opening fire on a suspected gang member in Baltimore, according to a report on the fatal shooting, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The decision was made by the Baltimore County state’s attorney’s office, which decided that the agents were acting in self-defense.
Agents fired 19 rounds, striking Jameel Kareem Ofurum Harrison, 34, six times.
The report states that Harrison “put the vehicle in reverse, accelerated past two witness vehicles, then struck a third witness vehicle. At that point the driver made a movement that placed three agents in fear of death or injury, causing them to discharge their weapons.”
Harrison died at the scene.
