CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) - An internal review of the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager by an Eaton County sheriff’s deputy after a traffic stop says training of officers needs to be emphasized.

The county prosecutor earlier said the deputy wouldn’t be charged after reviewing a state police investigation of the shooting. The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1PpBpMS ) the internal investigation found Sgt. Jonathan Frost followed department “regulations, general orders and training.”

The internal investigation recommend the department “re-emphasize” training on stun gun use and continue to place an emphasis during training on communication and “defensive ground fighting tactics.”

Frost shot 17-year-old Deven Guilford of Mulliken seven times Feb. 28 in Roxand Township.

Guilford was stopped for flashing his bright lights. They began to struggle when Frost tried to pull Guilford from his vehicle.
