Officers won't face charges in shooting

Posted by Terry Alexander

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - No charges will be filed against the Richmond police officers who shot a man who ran at them with a large knife.

Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Herring has ruled the shooting justified.

The officers, along with a VCU officer, fired on Nathan Randolph at a traffic stop on Broad Street last month. Randolph was shot several times.

He's now in the Richmond city jail charged with attempted capital murder.

He's also a suspect in his fiance's death.
