Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a man is recovering in the hospital after he was shot and injured by a CMPD officer Wednesday night.

The CMPD officer who shot Reuben Galindo will not face criminal charges, says Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray.

After a brief encounter with officers, Galindo was shot twice and died steps away from his home. The gun in Galindo's possession did not have ammunition.

An attorney for the family of Iaroslav Mosiiuk says police footage backs up the assertion that officers mishandled the situation leading to the shooting of the 25-year-old Ukrainian immigrant.
