Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala says he will not pursue charges against two officers involved in the fatal shooting of a suspect in Mount Oliver last May. The officers shot the suspect after the man shot and killed K-9 officer Aulf. Zappala says his investigation found the officers were justified in shooting 19-year-old Justin Jackson of Allentown and he has issued a memorandum to that effect. He says his detectives have spoken to the dead man’s family outlining his position.
