CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) - A prosecutor says no charges will be brought against three Eaton County deputies involved in the fatal shooting of a 32-year-old man.

Eaton County Prosecutor Doug Lloyd announced the decision Tuesday, saying two of the deputies at the scene fired a total of 11 shots at Matthew Lundy. The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1cw8hGk ) that the convicted felon had a gun and was shot 10 times.

The shooting happened Feb. 17 after an SUV went into a ditch and became stuck in snow in Eaton Rapids Township. Lloyd says Lundy experienced turmoil in the days before the shooting and threatened suicide or suggested he might spark a police confrontation.

Jamie White, an attorney for Lundy’s estate, says family members are satisfied with the investigation and no legal action is planned.
