POLICE SHOOTING-JUSTIFIED
Northeast Ohio prosecutor says fatal shooting of suspect by sheriff's deputies was justified

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 5:51 AM EDT
CLEVELAND


The Cuyahoga County prosecutor says the fatal shooting of a rifle-toting suspect by county sheriff's deputies in March was justified.

In a letter to the county sheriff Tuesday, prosecutor Tim McGinty said it was the "duty and responsibility" of deputies to fire on Israel Rondon when he disobeyed orders to drop his rifle and then aimed it at the lawmen.

The deputies went to Rondon's Middleburg Heights home on March 25 to pick him up on a warrant for felony assault on a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon.

Deputies said the 65-year-old Rondon came out carrying a rifle, disobeyed orders and aimed at deputies. Later it was determined that the rifle misfired.

McGinty said the deputies "were faced with an armed, irrational, intoxicated, violent suspect."
