(AP) -

A judge ruled in favor of the Cedar Falls police department following a 2013 officer-involved shooting that left a Parkersburg man hurt.

According to the federal judge, the officer's use of a deadly force was in fact reasonable, and the officer had cause to believe Zachary Church posed a threat.

According to the officer, he found Church asleep in a vehicle, and Church started hitting him after he woke up.
