Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Two officers are not facing charges for an incident that left one man dead just outside of at the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barracks in March.

Wicomico County state's attorney Matt Maciarello released his report Wednesday on the shooting, saying Cpl. Anthony Myers and Trooper First Class Jeffrey Wilkins did not commit a crime when shooting, ultimately killing Winfield Fisher.

According to the report, the incident began on March 18 when the 32-year-old Fisher went to the barracks for an equipment repair order.  According to Myers, the order smelled like marijuana. Maciarello says Myers called for backup after he went outside.  He grabbed Fisher, who shrugged him off and got into his car. Maciarello says that's when Fisher started his car, running Myers over in the parking lot. Myers and Wilkins both shot at Fisher.  According to Maciarello, three bullets were fired.  All three casing were recovered. Myers' only shot connected and hit Fisher.

Fisher's car hit a guardrail on Route 13, less than a tenth-of-a-mile northbound from the barracks .

Fisher was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
