The panel voted a “no-bill” and dismissed all potential charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo, sources told the Post. It was unclear exactly what charges prosecutors asked the grand jury to consider filing, or how the vote went, the report says.

The decision comes almost a week after angry protests flared up after a grand jury cleared White Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown.
