Paterson police officers were justified in shooting and killing a Pequannock man during an interaction in 2020.

Authorities said a New Jersey grand jury declined to file charges against the officers on Tuesday. The grand jury reviewed evidence and heard testimony before reaching its decision.

Police officers shot and killed 42-year-old Luan Agolli on April 23, 2020. Police responded to report of a man with a gun at around 4:09 p.m. in the area of 50 Carroll Street.

Agolli was walking the intersection of Carroll and Harrison streets with a gun in his hand. He ignored repeated commands to drop the weapon. At one point, Agolli raised and pointed the weapon at the direction of the officer.

Police officers Guillermo Galvan, Jorge Garcia, Jimmy Maldonado, and Maribel Seabrooks fired at Agolli.

Agolli died at the scene.
