Special Prosecutor: No Charges Will Be Filed Against Officers in Fatal 2013 Giles Co. Shooting

Posted:

Giles Co., VA - A special prosecutor says no charges will be filed against any officers involved in a fatal shooting in Giles County last year.

Salem Commonwealth's Attorney Thomas Bowers issued a release about the shooting Monday.

In October, Jonathan Robertson, 32, was shot and killed during a shootout with police.

State Police say Robertson was a robbery suspect who started firing at officers while they were serving warrants.

Bowers says State Police officers and Giles County deputies acted appropriately, believing that they were in danger.
