No charges will be filed against Minneapolis police officers who fatally shot a black man last month.

Business Insider reports Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman made the announcement Monday.

Minneapolis officials released body cam footage of the shooting hours before the announcement.

31-year-old Thurman Blevins Jr. was shot by police officers Ryan Kelly and Justin Schmidt on June 23.

Freeman said Blevins ran from officers while carrying a loaded handgun and refused to stop.

"When Mr. Blevins fled from the officers with a loaded handgun, refused to follow their commands for him to stop and show his hands and then took the gun out of his pocket and turned toward the officers, Mr. Blevins represented a danger to the lives of Officer Schmidt and Officer Kelly."

In body cam footage, Blevins can be heard saying "Please don't shoot me" and "I didn't do nothing."
