MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The top state prosecutor in Memphis says no criminal charges will be brought against a Memphis police officer who fatally shot a Black man after a high-speed chase and an attempted traffic stop. Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy said his office’s Justice Review Unit looked at evidence in the shooting of 20-year-old Jaylin McKenzie and concluded that Officer Nahum Dorme should not be charged. The district attorney said McKenzie ran away from police during the Dec. 16 traffic stop and fired a handgun twice at officers before he was shot and killed. Mulroy says he does have concerns about police department policies being violated in the shooting.
