STATEMENT FROM DA NANCY O’MALLEY REGARDING THE MARIO GONZALEZ CASE:

“I want to acknowledge the pain and concerns in our community over the killing of Mr. Gonzalez. This is true any time a situation involving police officers ends with the death of another. My sincere condolences go out to the family of Mr. Gonzalez at the time of his death and during this difficult time.

Analyzing facts and assessing the laws in cases where an individual is killed are taken with the most serious attention. We realize the impact of any decision. However, the decision must be one based on the integrity of the responsibility and legal process. Politics cannot enter into any decision. My Office, and my Team, including myself, worked very hard on the review of the case that resulted in Mr. Gonzalez’ death. After a thorough, extensive and independent investigation by my Office, the evidence does not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the officers broke any laws.”
