HUDSON, OH (WOIO) - A grand jury has declined to issue an indictment against an officer involved in a fatal shooting in Hudson, Ohio in 2016.

The case is now closed as a result of the decision, which was made Thursday afternoon.

Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri, 26, of the United Arab Emirates, was driving erratically when he crashed his car Dec. 4 and ran. Hudson police officer Ryan Doran chased after him, and after a brief struggle, shot Alameri once in the head, once in the face, and three times in the left leg.

Alameri, a Case Western Reserve University law student, was unarmed at the time, according to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Tests reveal that the only drug detected in Alameri's system at the time of the Dec. 4 incident was THC (marijuana). There were no other drugs or alcohol detected.
