Officer Involved Shooting Ruled Justified

Prosecutors in Winnebago County say an officer was within her rights when she shot and wounded a wanted man who tried to run her down back in March.

The officer was one of two who went to arrest the man who’d recently been released from prison, and was a suspect in a domestic violence case. Investigators say the man hit one squad car and was barreling down on the officer when she fired. The man was wounded, treated, and sent back to prison. The officer wasn’t hurt.
