KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerry Gorman will not file charges against two deputy U.S. marshals who shot and killed a man in Kansas City, Kansas.
Gorman said his investigation indicated the officers were justified in using deadly force.
Deputies went to a home as part of an investigation into several armed robberies. When they attempted to stop a Jeep that that drove away from the home, the driver drove off. It eventually crashed.
The marshals reported that Pippin appeared to have a gun when he started running toward one marshal.
The two marshals shot him. Pippin died of four gunshots.
