Officers Cleared in Shooting
The state attorney's office has finished it's investigation into in the March 2, 2010 shooting of University of Florida graduate student Kofi Adu Brempong and the officers involved have been cleared of any wrongdoing.
While the investigation into the officers actions is closed, charges against Adu-Brempong are still unresolved. State Attorney Bill Cervone has concluded the use of force was justifiable and no charges will be filed. Spencer Mann with the state attorney says his office is in negotiations with Brempong and his attorney Larry Turner in reaching a resolution.
"The defendant still remains under charge. We don't want to do anything that will violate the rights that he has invoked so we're hopeful that situation can be resolved within the next several days."
In light of the shooting, UF will review its procedures to see if there are any improvements that need to be made in terms of meeting the needs of the students while keeping the campus safe.
