Chief Janee Harteau said an internal investigation found the officers were warranted in using deadly force in the death of Jamar Clark, 24.

Police involved in last November's shooting said they were responding to an alleged assault by Mr Clark and that he tried to seize one of their weapons as they were doing so.

His death set off protests that lasted weeks.

Both the county prosecutor and the US attorney declined earlier to bring charges against the officers.

Some witnesses said Clark was handcuffed when he was shot.

Harteau said the shooting had been devastating for the Clark family and that she had met with them earlier on Friday.

"This sends a chilling message to all Minneapolis police officers that the next time they confront a similar situation they should take another life". He noted they have been through almost a year of investigations and relegated to desk duty. But investigators say the officers tried but failed to handcuff Clark, who was shot in the ensuing struggle after one officer shouted that Clark had his hand on an officer's gun.
