TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice's review will not lead to criminal charges to the police officer involved in the shooting death of Tarrytown's Andrea Rebello in May 2013, according to a Newsday report. 

Andrea Rebello, the 21-year-old Tarrytown woman, was killed in May 2013 during a home invasion on Long Island after being used by the intruder as a human shield, according to previous reports

A 28-page report from Rice's office "follows a review of whether police personnel acted lawfully during the deadly confrontation" and "gives new details about the incident from the point of view of witnesses who were inside the house," according to the report from Newsday. 

"This investigation has determined that a criminal prosecution of Officer (Nikolas) Budimlic is not warranted," officials wrote in the report, according to Newsday.

Budimlic, a Nassau County Police officer, fired eight rounds at Smith, one of which struck Rebello in the head, according to previous reports.

Rebello was a graduate of Sleepy Hollow High School.
