KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerry Gorman will not file charges against two deputy U.S. marshals who shot and killed a man in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1LT12W8 ) the two deputy marshals shot Patrick Pippin, of Shawnee, July 16 after he led police on a chase along Interstate 35.

Gorman said his investigation indicated the officers were justified in using deadly force.

Deputies went to a home as part of an investigation into several armed robberies. When they attempted to stop a Jeep that that drove away from the home, the driver drove off. It eventually crashed.

The marshals reported that Pippin appeared to have a gun when he started running toward one marshal.

The two marshals shot him. Pippin died of four gunshots.
