MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (AP) - Three McMinnville officers have been returned to duty after investigations into the shooting of a man who had fatally stabbed a Linfield College student.

The interim police chief, Matt Scales, tells the Yamhill Valley News-Register (https://bit.ly/1xe7QJT) an internal review has been completed.

The department hasn’t released the findings or made public any action Scales has taken.

The district attorney determined the officers acted lawfully in killing Juventino Bermudez-Arenas on Nov. 15. But the department’s policy calls for an internal review in addition, focusing on whether the use of force was consistent with training and policy.

Bermudez-Arenas had fatally stabbed sophomore Parker Moore at a convenience store minutes before, but authorities say they haven’t found a motive for that killing. The two didn’t know each other or quarrel.
