Officer Not Charged For Shooting Teen Girl During Domestic Call [VIDEO]

MUSKEGON (AP) — No charges will be filed against a western Michigan police officer who shot and wounded a knife-wielding 15-year-old girl as she tried to attack a 16-year-old boy.

MLive.com reports that Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson made the announcement earlier this week and said evidence showed the officer was justified in shooting the teenager to prevent her from assaulting the teen boy.

According to Hilson, video from the police cruiser shows Officer Doug Conrad walking up to the apartment when the boy emerges fleeing from the pursuing girl. The officer repeatedly warned the girl before he fired four times. She was struck in the leg.

Muskegon Police Chief Jeffrey Lewis says the officer will remain on administrative leave until the city completes an internal review of the incident.
