ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Monroe County grand jury has ruled that a security guard was justified in fatally shooting a man at a Rochester apartment complex earlier this year.

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office tells News10NBC that a grand jury determined Bradley Thomas was acting in a manic state, harassing others and threatened the security guard at the Cedarwood Towers apartment building back in January.

A police investigation revealed Thomas initiated physical altercations after the security guard made multiple calls to 911. 

The security guard shot his registered firearm one time at Thomas, striking him in the upper body. Thomas was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where he later died. 

The name of the security guard has not been released.
