(AP) NEW YORK - A New York City policeman who fatally shot another officer in a friendly fire incident will not face criminal charges.
Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said Thursday that a grand jury voted not to indict Officer Andrew Dunton in the May 28 shooting of Officer Omar Edwards.
Edwards had just ended a tour in Harlem when he chased a man who had broken into his car down a dark street.
Plainclothes officers patrolling nearby noticed the two men and ordered them to halt. When Edwards turned toward them with his gun out, Dunton shot him.
Dunton has been on administrative duty since the shooting.
He may still face an internal Police Department disciplinary review.
