Screenshot from body camera footage of April 9 deputy-involved shooting of Paige Schmidt Pierce. Deputy Nolan Davis won't be charged, District Attorney Seth Ryan said Wednesday morning at a press conference in Delta. Ryan told media Davis acted in self defense.

Protesters stood outside the Bill Heddles Recreation Center in Delta on Wednesday, chanting for justice for Paige Schmidt Pierce, the Austin woman fatally shot by Deputy Nolan Davis in April.

At a press conference inside earlier, District Attorney Seth Ryan said the deputy had acted in self-defense when he fired eight shots into Pierce's windshield and car as it bore down on him in a private drive near Hotchkiss, in full view of a civilian on a ride-along, as well as two other witnesses.


Protesters hold signs after a press conference on June 23, 2021 in Delta in which District Attorney Seth Ryan told media charges would not be brought against an officer who fatally shot Paige Schmidt Pierce in April.
