NEW YORK (Reuters) – A grand jury in New York state voted not to indict police officers for the death of Daniel Prude, a Black man who died of asphyxiation while in police custody in March 2020 in the city of Rochester, state Attorney General Letitia James said on Tuesday.

Prude’s family obtained body-worn camera footage of Prude’s death, which they released in September, that showed him naked in a snowy street, a so-called mesh “spit hood” placed over his head.

James said her office had hoped to secure indictments.

“I know that the Prude family, the Rochester community and communities across the country will rightfully be disappointed this outcome,” James said at a news conference in Rochester, a city in upstate New York.
