No charges in fatal chase after Michigan gun shop burglary

A prosecutor says no charges will be filed against sheriff’s deputies after three suspects they were chasing died following a gun shop burglary in southwestern Michigan.

Berrien County Prosecutor Michael Sepic announced the results of his review Monday.

A break-in was reported early April 15 at the Black Arsenal Gun Store. A witness described an SUV leaving the scene and a deputy spotted it on Interstate 94. Authorities say the deputy stopped the SUV, but it sped off and exited the freeway before crashing into a tree in Royalton Township.

Authorities say three young people in the SUV died. A fourth who was critically injured remains hospitalized in intensive care. Investigators found several stolen guns at the crash scene.

The sheriff’s office earlier said the deputies involved did nothing wrong.  (AP)
