Arkansas prosecutor: Officer-involved shooting justified

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A prosecutor says two Arkansas police officers who fatally shot a 26-year-old man earlier this month won't face charges related to the incident.

Washington County prosecutor Matt Durrett says Springdale Police Sgt. Josh Kirmer and Officer Roger Eubanks were justified when they killed Zachary Sutton after he fired on them during a traffic stop.

Police say Sutton was riding a scooter on Oct. 5 when he was stopped for a traffic offense. After Sutton stopped, police said he fired a handgun at the officers.        

The video wasn't released at the time of the shooting because it was part of the investigation.
