State attorney general not to file charges in officer-involved shooting of Zambrano-Montes
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The state attorney general is closing his investigation into the fatal shooting of Antonio Zambrano-Montes by Pasco police in February of 2015.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Thursday that his office will not bring criminal charges in the 2015 death of 35-year-old Antonio Zambrano-Montes.
Three members of the Pasco Police Department shot Zambrano-Montes numerous times after he threw rocks at officers and passing motorists at a busy downtown intersection according to documents.
This is the third and final review of this shooting.
The Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Washington both concluded earlier that no charges would be filed against the officers.
The death of the Zambrano-Montes was captured on video that went viral and sparked weeks of peaceful protests in Pasco.
