CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Investigators say a man who fired at Cheyenne police was killed by a bullet matching the caliber used by the responding officers.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1jvqFSY) new information from the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation says Saige Hack fired his weapon six times on July 16. Cheyenne Police Sgt. Brett Durante and Officer Bryce Younkin fired back.

Investigators also confirmed in the report sent to Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak on Oct. 6 that Hack’s blood alcohol content was more than 4 1/2 times the legal limit to drive a car.

Durante and Younkin returned to active duty two weeks after the shooting. A Cheyenne Police Department review board will investigate whether the shooting falls within department policy.

Kozak doesn’t expect Durante or Younkin to face disciplinary action.
