HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Reno County District Attorney’s Office has announced that no charges will be filed against Hutchinson police officers who fatally shot a man at his home.

According to a news release Thursday, Reno County District Attorney Keith E. Schroeder said officers “were completely justified in the actions they took” on June 23.

The news release says officers responded to a report of a man in a residence having confessed to killing someone. According to the release, 22-year-old Jonathan Wilson was behaving erratically inside the home, where there were three small children.

Police say Wilson threw knives and other objects at officers before he was fatally shot.

Wilson was the suspect in the death of a 38-year-old woman whose body was found in a creek bed in northern Reno County.
