Attorney: Marshalltown officers justified in shooting

Posted: Updated:
MARSHALLTOWN (KWWL) -

After reviewing material from the Iowa DCI's investigation of the December officer-involved shooting in Marshalltown, the Marshall County attorney determined the officers were justified in shooting a man.

Officer Ramon Maxey and Officer Benjamin Scheevel shot and killed Andrew Worsfold on Dec. 17, after Worsfold pointed a handgun and shot at Officer Maxey.

Attorney Jennifer Miller determined that their actions were consistent with Iowa law, and the force used by Officers Maxey and Scheevel was reasonable in that situation.

The two officers will not face criminal charges.
