Federal prosecutors on Tuesday said D.C. police officers were acting in self-defense in June when they fatally shot a Northeast man brandishing a BB gun that prosecutors say resembled an authentic firearm.

After an investigation, prosecutors say no charges will be filed against the officers involved in the June 27 fatal shooting of 63-year-old Sherman Evans Sr.

Prosecutors say Evans called a 911 dispatcher and repeatedly said there was a man outside a building in the 100 block of Varnum Street NE “brandishing a gun.” Investigators later determined after the shooting that Evans used his own cellphone to make the call and verified his voice on the 911 call.
