CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) - An Eaton County sheriff’s deputy will not be charged in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager during a struggle after a traffic stop.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1IiSl2R ) that county Prosecutor Doug Lloyd made the announcement Tuesday in Charlotte after reviewing a state police investigation of the shooting.

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

Guilford was stopped for flashing his bright lights. Lloyd said Guilford refused to provide his driver’s license, registration and insurance. They began to struggle when Frost tried to pull Guilford from his vehicle.

Frost suffered face and head injuries.

Hugh Davis, an attorney for Guilford’s family, says his legal team will review evidence from the police investigation.
