BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise police officer has been cleared of any wrongdoing after firing a shot at a suspect that missed.

The Boise Police Department in a decision announced Wednesday says Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs determined Office Michelle Havens acted according to protocol.

Police say that Havens fired one shot at Jennie Timmons in early March after Timmons didn’t follow verbal commands and brandished an all-black BB gun that looked like a real firearm.

Police say evidence indicates Timmons attempted to force officers to shoot her.

Timmons is facing a charge of aggravated assault.
