PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says a Mitchell police officer who fatally shot a man was justified in using lethal force.

Police Officer Russ Stevenson shot and killed 37-year-old Curtis Meyer on Sept. 4 during a struggle for the man’s gun after Stevenson responded to an early morning noise complaint.

Jackley’s report says Meyer was legally drunk and had been making suicidal statements the night of the shooting.
