OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Douglas County’s top prosecutor says the fatal shooting of a suspect by two deputies was justified.
The Omaha World-Herald (http://bit.ly/2cf1GRh ) reports that County Attorney Don Kleine made the determination Friday in the shooting death of 25-year-old David Anderson.
Police investigators say Anderson twice rammed a sheriff’s vehicle as he was approached Tuesday by several deputies trying to arrest him on a warrant, and two deputies fired at least nine shots. A 19-year-old woman with Anderson also was treated for minor injuries, but was not shot.
Police say the deputies, 37-year-old Michael Jones and 33-year-old Scott Kuzminski, feared for their lives and the lives of their colleagues when they shot Anderson.
Under state law, Anderson’s death will also be reviewed by a grand jury.
