No charges for 2 officers who shot carjacking, robbery suspect

Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Two officers who shot a robbery suspect will not be charged, according to the Travis County District Attorney’s Office.

DA Margaret Moore said in a statement her office will not present a case against officers Greg White and James Eichenholz.

Both officers fired their weapons at Glenn Austin Miles, 51, after he allegedly pulled out a gun after evading them on Sept. 9 in north Austin.

Miles was accused of a string of robberies and carjackings that began Sept. 4. Police said he would steal a car, use it in a robbery and then he would ditch the car.

On the day of the shooting, police received calls about a carjacking at a motel on 8010 N. Interstate 35 and a robbery at a convenience store on North Lamar Boulevard.

Officers spotted a car matching the description of one tied to the incidents. They followed him to a motel at 8312 N. I-35, and police say when they approached, Miles pulled a gun from his waistband, and the officers fired.

Miles was taken to the hospital where he had surgery. He faces charges of aggravated robbery for five different cases in Travis County.
