OAKLAND -- The two officers who last November shot and killed Derrick Jones, a father and barbershop owner, will not be charged by the Alameda County District Attorney's office, sources said Tuesday.
Late Tuesday, a spokeswoman from the district attorney's office said, "We are not commenting at this time."
On Nov. 8, the unarmed 37-year-old was shot by two officers in the 5800 block of Trask Street after a brief foot chase. The officers were trying to detain Jones after a report of a domestic dispute.
The officers involved were later identified as Eriberto Perez-Angeles, who has been with the department for three years and is also a member of the SWAT team, and Omar Daza-Quiroz, an officer for four years. The case has been under investigation for three months.
The officers told investigators that Jones kept reaching toward his waistband and that at one point they saw a "shiny object" that turned out to be a scale. Police said such scales are often used to weigh drugs and a small amount of marijuana was found on Jones.
