BRYAN, TX (KXXV) -

Police have released the video of a police officer involved shooting. 

The Brazos County District Attorney's Office decided Wednesday to take no action against an officer involved in a shooting back in February.

The district attorney's office completed its investigation into the officer-involved shooting, presented it to the grand jury, and decided to take no action in the matter, Bryan Police Department spokesperson Kelley McKethan said in a press release.

Police said Officer Steven Laughlin shot a 33-year-old man on Feb. 13 after a man involved in a disturbance refused to follow officers' commands, pulled out a black object from his pocket, and took a shooting stance.

The man was taken to the hospital and was released six days later.

The black object turned out to be a cell phone, according to police.

Laughlin has been released back to full duty.

"At this time, no charges have been filed against him, and none are anticipated," McKethan said.

The Bryan Police Department will be released body cam footage late Wednesday.
