In this 1970 family photo provided by Lori Cooper, Columbus, Ohio, police officer Niki Cooper poses in his "Company D" jacket signifying his membership in a unit of officers that worked an 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. swing shift during the police department's busiest hours. An 82-year-old man who was indicted, but never prosecuted, in the nonfatal shooting of Cooper almost 45 years ago cannot be tried now, a judge ruled Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017. Cooper, who died just over three years ago at 71, rarely spoke of the event and his family said he was never the same afterward. (Photo courtesy of Lori Cooper via AP)
