No charges for officers who shot and killed Waukesha suicidal man back in June
WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Waukesha District Attorney has completed an investigation into an officer-involved death that happened on June 18 in Waukesha.
The night of June 18 officers were called to William Brewster's home by his girlfriend who said he was suicidal with a gun.
Through the investigation, the District Attorney concluded that the officers actions were warranted. In his decision, DA Susan Opper said, "Given that Mr. Brewster was armed with a pistol capable of inflicting death or great bodily harm, the only reasonable degree of force available to the officers was to deadly force, in an attempt to terminate the threat."
