Paul Jubas, the family attorney for Peter Spencer, said the Venango County District Attorney informed the family of their decision.
â€œToday the Venango County District Attorney announced that no charges will be filed for the shooting death of Peter Spencer,â€ Jubas said in a statement obtained by HuffPost.
â€œWhile we disagree with the decision, we are not surprised by it,â€ Jubas continued. â€œThis is the type of behavior we have seen from the PA State Police and Venango County District Attorney from the outset.â€
Jubas closed his statement by asking for privacy regarding the family of Peter Spencer.
Spencer, a Jamaican immigrant, was killed in December after being invited to a cabin by a co-worker in Venango County.
Pennsylvania state troopers found the 29-year-old dead of apparent gunshot wounds in Venango County on Dec. 12. According to their police report, they were responding to a call about a shooting at 2:26 a.m. when they found Spencer â€œin the front yard of a residenceâ€ with â€œapparent gunshot wounds to his body.â€
