DALLAS (AP) -- Dallas police say an officer who shot a mentally ill man in a disputed incident caught on tape has been fired.
Police Chief David Brown apologized Thursday for the actions of Officer Cardan Spencer. He had been on administrative leave following the Oct. 14 shooting.
Brown initially said at a news conference that Spencer would face a charge of aggravated assault. But police later issued a statement saying a judge declined to sign the warrant. The case will go to a grand jury instead.
Spencer wrote in a police report that he shot Bobby Gerald Bennett after the 52-year-old man lunged at him and another officer with a knife. But video captured by a neighbor's surveillance camera shows Bennett didn't appear to move toward the officers before he was shot.
