— A police officer who fatally struck a man earlier this month won't face charges in connection with the incident.

Stilley was driving a patrol car about 4:50 a.m. Jan. 11 when he fatally struck Yukon resident Adam Christopher Johnson in the 400 block of S Ranchwood Blvd., a few blocks south of the Yukon Police Department.

Prosecutors found no evidence of wrongdoing, said Canadian County assistant district attorney Paul Hesse.

Police said Johnson, 33, appeared to have been lying in the road at the time of the incident. Yukon police Chief John Corn said police don't know why Johnson was in the road or whether he was conscious at the time.
