MARQUETTE, Michigan — The Marquette County prosecutor says no charges will be brought against a Munising police officer who fatally shot a man following a high-speed chase.

In a news release Tuesday, Prosecuting Attorney Matthew Weise said he determined no crime was committed when Timothy Mitchell was shot July 14 after the chase through Munising, southeast of Marquette. Mitchell was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Mining Journal reports ( ) the state attorney general's office appointed Weise as a special prosecutor in the case after Alger County Prosecutor Karen Bahrman recused herself.

The officer was placed on paid administrative leave while the investigation took place.
