WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa attorney general’s office says a Waterloo police officer was justified in shooting a man who was driving a vehicle toward the officer last month.

Waterloo police asked the attorney general’s office to review the Nov. 2 shooting of 24-year-old Brandon Seeley.

In a statement released Wednesday state public safety officials say the officer feared for his life when he fired four shots through the window of Seeley’s vehicle as it sped toward him.

Seeley was struck three times but drove off with police in pursuit. He was later located, arrested and hospitalized.

Charges include possession of a controlled substance and assault on a peace officer.

The officer’s name wasn’t released because he’s a member of a drug task force.

Seeley has no attorney listed in online court records.
