DA will not file against officials in Kansas man’s death

TOPEKA, Kansas. – The local prosecutor is not going to file criminal charges against two Kansas police officers in the fatal shooting of a black man earlier this year.

Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay announced his decision Wednesday in connection with the Sept. 28 shooting of 30-year-old Dominique White near a park in Topeka.

Kagay released a seven-page legal analysis that said White acted suspicious after the officers responded to a report of shots being fired in the area. The analysis said White struggled with the police, and seized a gun.

The analysis says, no reasonable judge or jury would find that the actions of the two Topeka officers were unlawful. The officers names have not been released.

A lawyer for White’s family did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment.
