PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City police officer who fatally shot a man last month has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says a state investigation concluded that Officer Derek Uebel was justified in using lethal force.

Police responded to a report of an active shooter in a residential area on June 17. Shots were fired both before and after officers arrived on the scene. Authorities said Uebel shot and killed 48-year-old Joseph Hogan after Hogan fired at the officer.
