Grand Jury Declines Punishment for Officers
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A grand jury says there is insufficient evidence to bring charges against Escambia County deputies for the July shooting of a Pensacola-area man.
Deputies were called to the home by a neighbor who reported a burglary, but 60-year-old Roy Middleton was looking for cigarettes in his own car in his driveway.
The deputies said they fired 15 rounds -- hitting Middleton twice in his leg -- after he refused to show his hands.
An assistant state attorney told the Pensacola News Journal on Wednesday that the grand jury made its decision after hearing from relevant witnesses.
Sheriff David Morgan says his office will conduct an internal review of the shooting to see if any of the department's policies were violated.
