MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport official says three police officers have been cleared in the shooting of a man accused of trying to run them down with a car last month.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says an internal review and another investigation by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office found the officers’ actions were justified.

Authorities say 36-year-old Mohamud Mohammed Maye drove his car at the three officers on an airport parking ramp on April 25, injuring two and narrowly missing the third. A criminal complaint says officers fired at the car, Maye crashed and was arrested.

An attorney for Maye tells Minnesota Public Radio News (https://bit.ly/1G23gRI ) that he’s in custody at a hospital with head and brain injuries. He has been charged with three counts of assault.
