Comanche Co. DA rules police shooting justified

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - The Comanche County District Attorney has ruled a deadly police and deputy involved shooting was justified.

It happened in early January of this year in Cache after authorities say James McDonald shot and killed Roger Cole and shot a woman in the face.

McDonald later got into a standoff with officers and deputies in which he opened fire on them.

They eventually shot and killed him.

After an OSBI investigation, DA Fred Smith says its the opinion of his office that the officers and deputies actions were justifiable.

He’s also informed them that they may return to duty.
