GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) -- Anne Arundel County Police Chief Kevin Davis says he stands by the department's decision to charge a man with murder, even though a judge dismissed all charges.
Davis spoke Thursday night at an event in Glen Burnie held by the NAACP to discuss the shooting of Kendall Green last September.
He was shot and killed by Matthew Pinkerton as he tried to enter Pinkerton's home to talk to his wife.
Davis told the group at John Wesley United Methodist Church police are committed to diversity and community policing.
The event was held to discuss Green's death and the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
