A rosary is draped over a portrait of 17-year-old Jessica Hernandez in her Thornton, Colo., home on Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015. The teenager was killed after she allegedly hit and injured a Denver Police Department officer while driving a stolen vehicle in northeast Denver alleyway.

After reviewing the January shooting, Morrissey concluded "this was a defensive shooting by both officers."
