CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
After investigating an officer-involved shooting that left one man dead in early January, the District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday that the officer was justified in using deadly force.
The incident happened around 11 p.m. on January 6 on Cooper Drive in south Charlotte. An officer involved with a traffic stop was approached by a man saying he needed help with his son, Spencer Mims, III, 55.
The man said his son had been having mental health issues and he wanted help getting some things out of the house so he could stay elsewhere overnight.
Officers J.B. Donaldson and M.D. Whitlock responded to the man's home, and were met by Mims, who was sitting on the front porch holding a box cutter to his own neck.
Officer Donaldson approached Mims and asked him repeatedly to drop the weapon, and offered him help. When Mims started to walk towards the officer, Officer Whitlock fired a taser at him, but it didn't stop him.
That's when Mims began aggressively walking towards Donaldson holding the box cutter towards him. Officer Donaldson, who was now on the porch with Mims, fired three shots when Mims became very close.
Mims was pronounced deceased at the hospital later that night.
The District Attorney said Tuesday that, after investigating the matter and talking to all witnesses, "It is clear from the information available to this Office that Officer Donaldson had no choice but to use deadly force. His actions were justified under North Carolina law.
