CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire police officer who was involved in the fatal shooting of a Claremont man has been cleared for duty.

Claremont Police Chief Alex Scott said Monday that Cpl. Ian Kibbe has been returned to line-duty status, effective that day. An administrative review of the incident has been completed.

The state attorney general’s office recently ruled that Kibbe was justified when he fatally shot 25-year-old Cody LaFont on Sept. 25.

The report said LaFont was holding a revolver at chest level and didn’t comply with orders to drop the gun. It said Kibbe believed LaFont was going to shoot him when he shot LaFont three times. Kibbe was removed from duty following the shooting.
