Criminal charges will not be filed against a Denver City police officer for a fatal shooting.

According to the Hobbs News-Sun, prosecutors won't be going after Officer Ryan Taylor.

Taylor shot and killed 35-year-old Amy Reyna from Hobbs.

Reyna was being chased across state lines when she drove into a pasture and stopped.

The chase happened last October in Yoakum County.

She was surrounded.

When she started to back her car up, court documents say Taylor thought she had a gun and fired at her car.

An autopsy ruled she had meth in her system.

Reyna's family has filed a federal lawsuit against the officers.
