Officer will not be indicted in killing of CWRU student

A Grand jury ruled Thursday that the Hudson officer that fatally shot a Case Western Reserve University student will not face charges. 

Officer Ryan Doran fatally shot 26-year-old Saif Alameri in a wooded area near the Ohio Turnpike on December 4. 

According to reports, Alameri sideswiped a car and then flipped his own and then fled the scene. 

Hudson Police were called to search for Alameri. A chase and a struggle took place, during which, Alameri was shot a total of five times. 

The Medical examiners office says that he was shot in the head, and died at the scene. He was not armed.

Ryan Doran, who joined the police department in August of 2004, was placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation. 

Case Western Reserve released the following statement on the grand jury ruling:

"The state may have closed the case involving our law student Saif Nasser Mubarak Ali Alameri, but his tragic loss continues to be felt keenly on our campus. His classmates, as well as school faculty and staff, described Saif as friendly, generous and regularly able to inspire a smile among others. We again express our deepest sympathies to his loved ones and friends, and hope that their memories of him still will provide comfort."
