Officers Cleared in February 9, 2018 Officer Involved Shooting

May 17th, 2018 at 4:41 PM

On February 9, 2018 at 8:52 PM a victim contacted the police department and informed them she had been confronted by a white male with a firearm at the 700 block of West Coconino Ave. Officers immediately responded and located a suspect matching the description the victim had provided. Police officers repeatedly demanded the man drop the firearm and not to wave it around or point it at anyone. After several minutes of the officers giving commands and the suspect failing to comply, the officers discharged their weapons and the suspect fell. After rendering medical-aid the suspect was pronounced deceased on scene.

On May 4, 2018 the Coconino County Attorney’s Office declined to file charges against any of the officers involved in the incident clearing them of criminal wrongdoing. This decline report also outlines the circumstances in which police officers are legally justified in using deadly physical force according to state law.
