No criminal charges will be filed against the armed security officer who killed a Liberty University student at an off-campus dorm in November.
Lynchburg Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Jeffrey Bennett ruled that officer A.S. Mulberry acted in self-defense when he shot 19-year-old Joshua Hathaway on Nov. 19, 2013.
The investigation found that Hathaway attacked Mulberry with a mallet after telling him that his car was stolen. No drugs or alcohol were found in Hathaway's system.
Hathaway was from Texas and a freshman at Liberty University.
