Officers avoid charges in fatal shooting of Detroit man suffering mental health crisis


The Wayne County District Attorney’s office said the Detroit police officers involved in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man with a mental health crisis in October acted in self-defense and will not face charges. The officers repeatedly asked Birx to drop his weapon, which can also be seen in the body camera video released by the police department. Anderson also told officers his brother was frantic and slashed his tires, which can be seen in the body camera footage. According to the district attorney’s investigation, Birx ran approximately 40 feet in less than three seconds toward the officers.
