Prosecutor Daniel Looney said that the officers' testimony during the trial was corroborated by forensic evidence.
Byer claimed he was carrying a bottle, not a gun, when police officers Timothy Nolan and Kenneth Endo opened fire during the July 14, 2007, encounter. Byer was struck by five bullets.
Prosecutors said the officers opened fire after Byer pointed a .22-caliber revolver at Nolan.
