Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Tuesday that there will be no charges against two Baton Rouge police officers in the shooting of Alton Sterling, reports the AP. Sterling, a black man, was shot while being arrested by a pair of white police officers in July 2016 outside of a convenience store where he was selling homemade CDs. The police report states that the officers saw Sterling reach for a gun in his pants as he was being restrained.

The big picture: Sterling's death sparked outrage and protests nationwide after multiple cellphone videos of the shooting were released, but the Justice Department declined to file federal charges against the officers last year. Sterling family attorney Michael Adams said during a press conference today that the decision not to charge the officers was disappointing, but said "the fight is not over with." Adams added that the Sterling family has filed a civil lawsuit against the Baton Rouge police department.

Bob Woodward: "I was not going to hide" my opinion on Trump

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
