SALISBURY, Md. - A press conference has just ended at the Salisbury Police Department, regarding the death of 15-year-old James M. Bennett High School student, Jorgens Sydney. Police have been investigating his death, and the 3 officers involved.

On March 7th, officers say they tried to pull the teen over, but he fled and led police on a chase, but it ended when Sydney crashed into a pole. He allegedly died from his injuries.

Authorities have decided not to pursue charges against the officers, saying they maintained a safe following distance. However, police are still asking for witnesses to come forward. The toxicology report, is expected in about 3 weeks.
