No charges after fatal shooting at NSA
Jun. 24, 2015
FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Federal and local authorities say no charges will be filed after an investigation of a fatal shooting by National Security Agency police at Fort Meade in Maryland.
The U.S. Attorney's Office and Howard County police said Tuesday that they've completed investigations into the March 30 incident at a security gate outside the agency off the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
Authorities said 27-year-old Ricky Hall, who went by Mya, was killed and a passenger was wounded when police opened fire after the pair ignored orders to turn around a stolen SUV.
U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein says video shows Hall ignoring officers' commands and "racing toward the officer who fired at the vehicle." He says officers committed no crimes and there's no basis for federal charges against the passenger. County police say they won't bring charges.
