"District attorney not filing charges in Shannon shooting"

RACINE — Racine County District Attorney Tricia Hanson announced Tuesday that her office will not press charges against two Racine Police Department officers involved in the shooting death of Donte Shannon.
Shannon, 26, of Racine, was killed by police on Jan. 17 after fleeing during a traffic stop and brandishing a gun, according to an investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
Hanson informed friends and family of Shannon of her decision during a Tuesday night meeting. Afterward, she announced her decision to the public via a news release.
“After an extensive investigation and an exhaustive review of the evidence,” Hanson stated in a press release, “Investigator Chad Stillman and Officer Peter Boeck are immune from criminal liability in this case, as Mr. Shannon’s death was a direct result of his deadly threat to the officers.”
