The Akron police officers who shot and killed a 25-year-old Black man after a foot chase and automobile chase last year were not indicted by a special grand jury in Ohio.

According to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, the grand jury found that the officers' use of force on Jayland Walker was legal.

On June 27, 2022, shortly after midnight, police conducted a traffic stop of a 2005 Buick with a damaged licence plate light, according to the authorities.

During the pursuit, the car's driver, later identified as Walker, allegedly fired a bullet from inside the vehicle as he sped away from the police.

Walker later fled the car wearing a ski mask and led police on a foot pursuit while disobeying orders to halt and expose his hands, according to Yost.

Police used non-lethal Tasers in an effort to apprehend him. Following that, Walker made a motion that the cops mistook for a threat, claims Yost.

Police claim that Walker was unarmed when he was slain. After the incident, a gun was discovered in his car, and the ballistics of a shot recovered nearby matched the weapon.

Police published a timeline of the incident with body camera footage from 13 of the officers who were there, as well as still photos from traffic cameras, a week after the shooting.

The inquiry found that eight police officers shot at Walker 94 times in a span of 6.7 seconds. Each of the three officers fired 18 shots.

Dr. Lisa Kohler of the Summit County Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy on Walker, who had 46 gunshot entrance wounds or graze wounds. Walker was nonetheless handcuffed following the shooting.

DiCello stated on Monday that the family will launch a civil lawsuit and that he was upset in the grand jury's verdict. We're going to file it before the one-year mark since his passing, he declared.
