    A shot of Derrick Jones.

    The two Oakland officers who shot and killed a well known barber and father last November will not be charged according to the Oakland Tribune. The paper is citing a source close to the investigation into the death of Derrick Jones.

    The 37-year-old was shot and killed on November 8 after a brief foot chase on Trask Street. The officers were trying to detain Jones after domestic disturbance call. Officers Eriberto Perez-Angeles and Omar Daza Quiroz say Jones kept reaching toward his waistband during the chase and at one point they saw a shiny object. That turned out to be a scale.

    Jones was unarmed when he was shot. The Alameda County District Attorney's office has been investigating the incident for three months. The District Attorney's office has not released the official results of its investigation.
