ALBION – The Kendallville Police officer who shot a man while responding to a domestic disturbance on Aspen Cove November 22nd won’t face charges.
Noble County Prosecutor James Mowery issued a statement this morning saying Officer Douglas Davis won’t be charged, following a review of video, witness statements and interviews.
Davis encountered 28-year-old Faustino Jesus Vasquez in the 1800 block of Aspen Cove and said Vasquez pointed a handgun at the officer. Davis drew his own weapon and shot Vasquez twice, then called for officer support and medics.
An internal investigation by Kendallville Police determined Davis did not violate any protocols or procedures.
The investigation into possible criminal charges against Vasquez is continuing.
