The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has announced it is not filing any charges in the case of a Detroit resident shot by a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent.

Agent Mitchell Quinn and six law enforcement officers visited Terrence Kellom’s home with a warrant in April. Kellom was wanted for armed robbery and other charges. Officers on the scene say Kellom rushed at Quinn with a hammer and refused to stop when ordered to do so.  Quinn fired his weapon, killing Kellom.

Kellom’s father says that isn’t what happened.  He says there was no hammer, but Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says the evidence found during her investigation supports Agent Quinn’s version of the events. She says he acted in self-defense.
