DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors won’t file charges against four officers who shot and killed an armed robbery suspect following a high-speed chase.

Adams County District Attorney Dave Young announced his decision Thursday in the Nov. 10 death of 36-year-old Jason Mesaros, of Loveland.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/9J2myb ) Mesaros was being chased after he was identified as a suspect in a home-invasion robbery near Boulder.

Investigators say he fled from a traffic stop, and the chase ended in Brighton when a state trooper used maneuver to spin out the pickup truck Mesaros was driving. Officers then surrounded the vehicle.

Prosecutors say the officers saw Mesaros point a handgun at his chin and then appeared to point it in their direction. The four officers opened fire, and Mesaros died at the scene.
