PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) —
A Philadelphia police officer will not be charged following a fatal shooting in the Tacony section of the city this past summer.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, whose office was handling the investigation, made the announcement on Tuesday.
Officer Richard Nicoletti, a 29 year veteran of the force, was under investigation for the shooting back on August 20 that left 36-year-old Jeffrey Dennis dead.
“We applied the facts to Pennsylvania law, and accordingly, no criminal charges against Richard Nicoletti will be filed by my Office,” Shapiro said in a statement.
Video released by Shapiro’s office shows the incident, which happened in the 7100 block of Hegerman Street.
