SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — No charges will be filed against two Santa Ana police officers who killed a man and injured another in a shooting that followed a March car chase.

A prosecutor from the Orange County district attorney's office sent a letter this week to the interim police chief that says the officers' actions were reasonable and justified.

However, the letter didn't reveal any details of the incident.

Police say the shooting occurred after a freeway chase involving a stolen car, which ended when the vehicle crashed at a Santa Ana intersection and two men fled.

Forty-one-year-old Jason Hallstrom was shot and killed while 29-year-old Travis Mock was wounded.

Mock has pleaded not guilty to charges that include unlawfully taking a vehicle and evading police.
