RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Prosecutors in Wake County say there will be no charges against three Raleigh police officers involved in a shooting following a break-in last fall.

District Attorney Lorrin Freeman told local media Thursday that the officers did not use excessive force in the shooting that wounded a suspect and an officer.

Chijioke Kennedy Madueke was shot by police in an apartment Nov. 30 after police say he rushed out of a bedroom toward the officers with a knife. Madueke later acknowledged he had a knife, but gave conflicting accounts about whether it was in his hand or his pocket.

He was hit several times. Officer C.N Chandler was shot in the abdomen but the bullet was stopped by his vest and he was treated and released from a Raleigh hospital.
