Officers in Jamar Clark shooting will not face discipline


The two Minneapolis police officers involved in the November 2015 fatal shooting of Jamar Clark will not face discipline because an internal investigation found they did not violate the department's use-of-force policy.

Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze were previously cleared of any criminal or civil wrongdoing by separate state and federal investigations completed over several months. They have been on desk duty since the Nov. 15 incident when Clark, 24, was shot in the head during a scuffle with the officers outside a north Minneapolis apartment complex.

"I have concluded these officers did not dictate the outcome of this incident. This was an outcome no one wanted," Police Chief Janeé Harteau said at a short news conference Friday, her first extensive public comments about the case.
