Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said that no charges will be filed against two Baton Rouge police officers in the 2016 shooting death of Alton Sterling. According to CNN, Landry said that an investigation determined the officers acted in a "reasonable and justifiable manner.”
The announcement came nearly a year after federal prosecutors determined they wouldn't file civil rights charges against the officers.
Attorneys for Sterling's family slammed what they called a biased decision -- and urged the public to hold Landry accountable.
Sterling, 37, was shot and killed by one of two police officers who confronted him outside a convenience store in July 2016. Cell phone video showed Sterling, a black man, pinned to the ground by the white Baton Rouge police officers before he was shot; police said Sterling was shot because he was reaching for a gun.
