CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charges have been dismissed against CMPD officer Randall "Wes" Kerrick, the North Carolina Attorney General's Office said in a statement Friday.
Randall "Wes" Kerrick is accused of shooting and killing Jonathan Ferrell, an unarmed man.
Kerrick was among three officers who were called to Reedy Creek Road around 2:30 a.m. Sept. 14, 2013.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said Ferrell ran toward the officers when they arrived. One of the officers deployed his Taser, but it was unsuccessful. Kerrick fired his weapon 12 times at close range. Ten of the shots hit Ferrell, killing him.
