Commonwealth's Attorney Donald Caldwell says Officers John Hoover and Allen Bower will not face criminal charges for shooting Darryl A. Baker on Highland Avenue November 12.
In a statement released this afternoon, Caldwell points out that Baker was resisting arrest and pointing a pistol at the officers.
He says under those conditions they were justified in using deadly force.
Baker was shot nine times, but survived.

(SOT-Jocelyn Schuman/Breast Cancer Patient)

When I was first diagnosed they said I was very early stage one that the probability of me having to take chemo was exceptionally small. :08
DOCTORS ANALYZED JOCELYN'S TUMOR AND DETERMINED SHE WAS AT A LOW RISK OF HAVING THE CANCER COME BACK.... AND THEREFORE PROBABLY DIDNT NEED CHEMO. BUT A NEW TEST FOUND SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT.

(SOT-Jocelyn Schuman/Breast Cancer Patient)

the results of that test came out high risk for me, which was very confusing. :06

(STANDUP: Dr. Sean Kenniff/CBS NEWS)

WHERE THE CURRENT TEST LOOKS AT THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF A TUMOR THE NEW TEST, CALLED ONCOTYPE D-X, ACTUALLY STUDIES GENES WITHIN THE TUMOR.... AND NEW RESEARCH SHOWS IT IS MUCH MORE ACCURATE.

(SOT-Dr. Larry Norton/Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center)

this will tell us with much better accuracy who is gonna have a high chance of the cancer coming back, who is going to have a low chance of the cancer coming back. :07
WHICH MEANS SOME PATIENTS GIVEN CHEMOTHERAPY IN THE PAST MIGHT BE ABLE TO SKIP IT.... AND PATIENTS LIKE JOCELYN, WHO WERE THOUGHT TO BE LOW RISK, CAN GET IT.

(SOT-Dr. Larry Norton/Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center)

so basically it's going to be good news for everybody, we'll be able to tell patients you don't have to get chemotherapy, hormone therapy will be good for you and you have a good prognosis... or for your particular case chemotherapy works really well. :13
