Denver DA will not charge officer who shot, killed Paul Castaway

 


Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey will not file criminal charges against a police officer who in July shot and killed a mentally ill man wielding a knife in a mobile home park.

The shooting by Officer Michael Traudt was justifiable, Morrissey wrote in a decision released Monday. The victim, Paul Castaway, was violent, potentially suicidal and had an "astounding combination" of alcohol and drugs in his system, the letter said.
