MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A grand jury in West Virginia has declined to indict five police officers involved in the fatal shooting of a Virginia man.

Berkeley County prosecutor Pamela Games-Neely tells media outlets that the grand jury made its decision Wednesday after it received the findings of an investigation of the shooting.

She declined to identify the five Martinsburg officers.

Police have said 50-year-old Wayne Arnold Jones of Stephens City, Va., was shot on March 13 after he stabbed on officer during a scuffle.

Jones' family filed a $200 million federal lawsuit against the city of Martinsburg and the five officers in June. The family's attorney, Sherman Lambert, says he's disappointed by the grand jury's decision.

Lambert says he plans to seek a federal investigation of the shooting.
