No charges for Balto. Co. of­fi­cer in D.C. shoot­ing

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

An Bal­ti­more County po­lice of­fi­cer who shot a man wield­ing a knife at Wash­ing­ton’s Union Sta­tion last year will not be crim­i­nally charged, the U.S. at­tor­ney’s of­fice for the District of Columbia said. The U.S. at­tor­ney’s of­fice an­nounced Fri­day that it had found in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to pur­sue charges against Of­fi­cer Ge­orge Mussini, who was off duty when he shot Rashad Bugg-Bey on Nov. 14, 2015. Bugg-Bey, 25, and a fe­male rel­a­tive were at the sta­tion when Bugg-Bey “in­ex­pli­ca­bly” pulled out a large kitchen knife and slashed her face, the of­fice said. Mussini saw Bugg-Bey with the knife. Bugg-Bey fol­lowed the of­fi­cer and his friend onto the es­ca­la­tor and pointed the knife to­ward them, the of­fice said. Mussini iden­ti­fied him­self as a po­lice of­fi­cer and told Bugg-Bey sev­eral times to drop his weapon, but pros­e­cu­tors said Bugg-Bey re­fused. He then raised the knife in a “threat­en­ing and men­ac­ing” man­ner, ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses. When Bug­gBey had al­most reached the top of the es­ca­la­tor, Mussini fired at him. Bugg-Bey was taken to a hospi­tal with gun­shot wounds to his head and hand. He was re­leased Dec. 11, 2015, and died Dec. 22 of wounds from the shoot­ing. A Bal­ti­more County po­lice spokesman said Mussini is on full-duty sta­tus. Texas, ad­dress, and ask for in­for­ma­tion on 2014 cov­er­age, say­ing the is­sue is re­lated to the Af­ford­able Care Act. No­tices ask for checks to be made out to “the I.R.S.” and sent to the Austin Pro­cess­ing Cen­ter at a post of­fice box. “While the no­ti­fi­ca­tions may look of­fi­cial, sadly, it’s just an­other way scam­mers take money from un­wit­ting con­sumers,” Frosh said. “The IRS does not send emails.” The IRS uses an au­then­tic CP2000 no­tice when in­come re­ported from third-party sources such as an em­ployer does not match in­come re­ported on a tax re­turn. But au­then­tic no­tices tell tax­pay­ers what to do it they dis­agree about ow­ing ad­di­tional tax and re­quest checks be made out the “United States Trea­sury.” Con­sumers who are vic­tim­ized are urged to file crim­i­nal com­plaints, while any­one re­ceiv­ing a let­ter can file a com­plaint with the Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Di­vi­sion at www.mary­lan­dat­tor­ney­gen­eral.gov/Pages/CPD/Com­plaint.aspx.
