Federal prosecutors say they will not charge three police officers in Pasco, Washington, for the fatal shooting of Mexican farmworker Antonio Zambrano-Montes in February 2015. Police fired 17 shots at Zambrano-Montes, accusing him of throwing stones at them. Cellphone video appears to show Zambrano-Montes running across an intersection, turning to face police and raising his hands before he’s shot. But U.S. Attorney Michael Ormsby said there was insufficient evidence the officers violated Zambrano-Montes’ civil rights. His family has filed a lawsuit in federal court.
