Federal officials say they will not prosecute two white Minneapolis officers in the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said there was insufficient evidence in the case as the reason not to file civil rights charges.

Clark was shot in the head after police said he resisted arrest on Nov. 15 near the city’s North Side police precinct. The officers were responding to a call from paramedics treating a woman who claimed that Clark harmed her. Some witnesses said Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, but Luger said evidence contradicted those claims.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the shooting.  Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in March that no state charges would be brought against the officers.
