Akron, Ohio - The Summit County Prosecutor has determined that a University of Akron police officer was justified when he shot and killed a 64-year-old man during a traffic stop in May.
No charges will be filed against Officer Aaron Burnette and the case wasn't presented to a grand jury.
Video from the officer's body pack shows him firing his service pistol 16 times into a Pontiac Sunfire.
The officer, a 15-year veteran of the UA force, opened fire after James Genda pulled out what appeared to be a .45-caliber pistol. It turned out the weapon was actually a BB gun.
Genda was pulled over on May 16 along Wolf Ledges Parkway because the license plate on his vehicle was registered to a different vehicle.

After Burnette told the driver to get out of the car, Genda can be heard saying
