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