LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles prosecutors said on Thursday they would not charge a former police officer in the 2015 shooting death of an unarmed man, despite a call by the city’s police chief to do so. The former officer, Clifford Proctor, may have believed the 29-year-old man he shot was reaching for his partner’s weapon during a struggle outside a bar, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a report outlining the decision. The May 5, 2015 shooting of Brendon Glenn in the beachside neighborhood of Venice followed a series of killings of unarmed black men by police that put law enforcement agencies across the United States under scrutiny over their use of lethal force.
