The two LAPD officers who fatally shot Ezell Ford in 2014 will not face criminal charges. Ezell Ford was killed by police during a struggle over an officer's gun. This happened near his home in South L.A.
His death brought on several protests and calls for a speedy and transparent investigation.
Ezell's mother says he had history of mental illness and called the shooting "unjustified."
LA District Attorney Jackie Lacey says the officers acted in self-defense. Ezell's mother Tritobia Ford says those officers are getting away with murder.
Ford was here on Good Day LA with us on Wednesday morning - just one day after the announcement to discuss the case.
