Prosecutor: Wyoming officer-involved shooting 'accidental'

posted by WOOD TV -

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Two Wyoming officers who were put on administrative leave will not face charges for allegedly firing their guns during a domestic disturbance call last month.

Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker announced his decision Friday in connection to the June 13 incident at Timber Ridge Apartments on 44th Street SW near Byron Center Avenue.

Becker called the first shooting "not an unreasonable decision" and said the second shooting "was a mistake, but the law allows for a mistake in a turbulent decision like this."

A man who only wanted to be identified as Jordan previously told 24 Hour News 8 his roommate, 27-year-old Cory Robinson, had a history of issues and had talked about seeing demons.

Jordan said Robinson had just asked a friend to bring over guns and ammunition, but that friend turned him down and called Jordan to warn him.

Jordan said officers’ arrival set off Robinson, who screamed at police “come and get me,” and tried to break through a bathroom door using a knife and shotgun to get him.
