Officers cleared in deadly shooting near Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police in northwestern Ohio say they're closing the case on an officer-involved shooting in October.

Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson said Friday that a grand jury this week declined to indict Lake Township police Sgt. Scott Sims and former Officer Shannon Badgett.

The Toledo Blade reports that (http://bit.ly/R3NCeR ) both officers fired their guns after responding to a domestic violence call on Oct. 16 in Lake Township, killing Jorge Duran III.

The 24-year-old Toledo man had just killed his ex-girlfriend, 26-year-old Amber Jones, and the couple's 3-year-old son.

Dobson says that police shot Duran as he pointed his gun at officers arriving on the scene.

Dobson says "the grand jury did exactly the right thing, as the police, officers did as well."
