SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say the investigation into a deadly officer-involved shooting outside a Sandpoint hospital is nearing completion.

Bonner County sheriff’s Detective Gary Johnston tells The Daily Bee (https://bit.ly/1toNmLF ) he expects the investigation to be completed by the end of the week and forwarded to prosecutors for review.

Authorities say officers Skylar Ziegler, Michael Valenzuela and Garrett Johnson were involved in the July 8 shooting near Bonner General Hospital that killed 35-year-old Jeanetta Marie Riley.

The officers say Riley approached them and refused their commands to drop a knife.
