ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (AP) — No charges will be filed in the death of a 12-year-old boy who drowned in a swimming pool at St. Louis Park Middle School.

The family of Abdullahi Charif says it was upset to learn of that decision Thursday.

The boy was found unresponsive at the bottom of the pool by the gym teacher as a swimming class was wrapping up on Feb 27. The teacher pulled the child out of the pool and began CPR. Charif later died.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports the case was investigated by the school district and the St. Louis Park Police Department, and reviewed by the Hennepin County Attorney's office.

The family has said the boy did not know how to swim.
