PROVIDENCE - A Providence police officer will not face criminal charges for fatally shooting a man who was allegedly attacking a woman with a bayonet.
A Providence County grand jury did not return an indictment against John Abatiello.
The attorney general's office said yesterday the grand jury had completed its investigation and concluded that Abatiello's shooting of Eddy Tiburcio last month was legally justified. Police have said Abatiello shot Tiburcio after he refused orders to drop the bayonet and raised the weapon again.
