COLUMBUS (AP) - Columbus police have determined that three officers acted within department policy when they fatally shot an Ohio man after he killed a couple and their 7-year-old son.

A grand jury previously declined to bring charges against the officers involved in the confrontation with 50-year-old Barry Kirk in November 2015.

The officers had responded to gunshots and chased Kirk when he came out of the house. Kirk was shot and later died.

Thirty-one-year-old John Anderson, 30-year-old Christina Anderson and their son Landon were found dead in the house with multiple gunshot wounds. Their then-12-year-old daughter was critically wounded but survived.

John Anderson’s brother said Anderson had been friendly with Kirk, who lived across the street, but that the men had some sort of argument in the months before the shooting.
