OT: "We shot you, but we're gong to let it slide."

The opening paragraph of a news story from the Baltimore Sun:

Prosecutors have decided not to file charges against a Howard County teenager who was shot accidentally in April by an undercover officer during a suspected drug deal, according to the Howard County state's attorney's office.

Naturally, the no-charges-filed decision was with regard to the suspected drug deal, but somehow it read differently to me.

Language is a tricky thing.
