ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Prosecutors say a southeastern Michigan police officer won’t face criminal charges in the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old woman who confronted officers with a knife.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1DfS0fT ) Friday that Washtenaw County prosecutors found Ann Arbor officer David Ried acted in self-defense. The decision follows a state police investigation.

Investigators say Aura Rosser was shot once Nov. 9 after officers responded to a domestic disturbance report and were confronted by her.

Ried and Mark Raab, the other responding officer, were placed on administrative leave.

Rosser’s boyfriend Victor Stephens has said they were fighting and he wanted police to remove her from the house but lethal force wasn’t justified.

Both Prosecutor Brian Mackie and police Chief John Seto call the incident “tragic.”
