No criminal charges filed against officer who shot and killed Korryn Gaines

  /  09.20.2016

Reports say it has been determined that the police did not commit a crime when they shot and killed 23-year-old Korryn Gaines in her home on August 1. The shooting occurred after an hourslong standoff in which Gaines refused to let police in her Baltimore-area apartment. Her 5-year-old son was also shot by police during the incident.

According to WBAL TV, the Gordon Law Group released a statement saying that attorneys with their office and the Law Office of Jimmy M. Bell will meet with Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger on Wednesday, “for him to advise the family that he completed his monitoring of the police investigation into the killing of Korryn Gaines and will not be filling criminal charges against any of the officers involved.”

Sovereign law made Cliven Bundy a “patriot” but Korryn Gaines “crazy”

Last week, Gaines’ family filed a lawsuit against Baltimore County, citing a lack of faith in the police investigation. On Tuesday (September 20), the NAACP Defense Fund asked for an independent investigation.

A news conference is expected for Wednesday where a formal announcement will be made.
