CATO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Prosecutors have cleared a state trooper in the fatal shooting of a man who wounded a Montcalm County sheriff’s deputy with a crossbow in October.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1OIi8qT ) Montcalm County Prosecutor Andrea Krause made the determination that the trooper fired properly, in self-defense.

Authorities were serving an arrest warrant on 40-year-old Travis Lee Quay at his Cato Township home when the Deputy Michael Kotenko was struck in the side with an arrow.

The trooper returned fire, striking Quay at least once. Quay was pronounced dead at the scene about 50 miles northeast of Grand Rapids.
