COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A grand jury has cleared three Ohio police officers who fatally shot a man after he killed a couple and their 7-year-old son.

The officers responded to reports of shots fired at a Columbus home last November and chased 50-year-old Barry Kirk when he came out of the house.

Authorities say Kirk refused orders and pulled a gun on the officers, who returned fire. Kirk later died.

The Columbus Dispatch reported (https://bit.ly/1RYR7hf ) Thursday a grand jury cleared Officers Eric Clouse, Lincoln Green and Jack Snyder in the shooting.

Thirty-one-year-old John Anderson, 30-year-old Christina Anderson and their son Landon were found dead inside with multiple gunshot wounds. Their 12-year-old daughter survived.

The girl’s uncle, Jason Lozier, has said Kirk was a once-friendly neighbor who had previously argued with Anderson.
