CINCINNATI (USA Today) — Two officers who arrived moments after former University of Cincinnati Officer Ray Tensing fatally shot a man during a traffic stop won’t face charges for lying about what they saw.

A Hamilton County grand jury declined Friday to charge Phillip Kidd or David Lindenschmidt after investigating statements they made at the scene of the shooting July 19. The officers have been suspended with pay pending the outcome of a separate investigation by the university.

The decision not to charge the two officers was made by the same grand jury that indicted Tensing on a murder charge earlier this week for the shooting death of Samuel DuBose.
