A grand jury has decided that four police officers should not be charged with any crimes in a deadly shooting during a Harlem block party last summer.
Two people familiar with the probe tell The Associated Press that the Manhattan grand jury declined to indict any of the officers who fired a total of 46 bullets in the Aug. 8 incident.
The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the secrecy of the proceedings.
Manhattan prosecutors didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Earlier this week, the only man arrested in connection with the shooting was cleared of any criminal charges.
Manhattan prosecutors announced Wednesday that a grand jury voted to dismiss all charges against Angel Alvarez in the Aug. 8 incident.
He was freed after being held since August on a weapon-possession charge.
It wasn't immediately clear whether anyone else might be charged. Prosecutors declined to comment.
The melee erupted at around 3 a.m. on Aug. 8, 2010 during a block party in Harlem. Alvarez, 24, got into a fight with Luis Soto and wrestled a gun away from him. Police responded to the fight and a hail of bullets rang out. Soto, the man Alvarez was fighting, was killed.
Prosecutors said Soto was killed by police bullets but officers argued Alvarez was also firing a gun. Alvarez miraculously survived a hail of police gunfire. Three bystanders and two police officers were wounded as police fired 46 bullets.
