DA: No charges against Wisconsin officers in fatal shooting

MONROE COUNTY, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin prosecutor says no officers will be charged in the fatal shooting of a man outside a bar near Sparta last month.

The Monroe County DA says the officers' actions were lawful.

Authorities were called Nov. 5 to the Cotter Pin in Leon.

A woman called 911, saying her husband had choked her and put a loaded gun to his head.

Michael Nguyen was found outside the bar and ignored commands to drop his gun.

Nguyen smashed a bar window and fired a round.

An officer shot Nguyen as the suspect came out from behind a State Patrol squad car.
