Prosecutor Will Not File Charges Against Deputy Involved in Fatal Shooting in Early May


PIKE COUNTY -- Prosecutors won’t file charges against a Pike County deputy involved in the shooting death of 69-year-old Michael Faris.

Deputy Paul Collier was on duty earlier this month when he was called to Faris’ home on reports someone was shooting at him.

When officers arrived, the suspect allegedly pulled a gun from his pocket prompting the deputy to open fire.  Faris’ died from his injuries.

After reviewing the evidence and body cam video, prosecutors determined Deputy Collier "acted reasonably."
