D.A.: Officer-Involved Shooting Ruled Justified

COLORADO SPRINGS--The district attorney has ruled that an officer who fired at a man in his own driveway, was justified.

It happened around 11:00 p.m. on May 20th in the 6600 block of Summer Grace Street in Colorado Springs.

According to the 4th Judicial District Attorney's office, 43-year-old Laurence Rowley's wife called police, asking them to check on him after he made threats to other family members. While they were at the house, Rowley came out of his garage and pointed a gun at an officer. When he ignored commands to drop it, the officer fired, hitting Rowley in the shoulder.  

There were no injuries to officers. Rowley was hospitalized, but is expected to survive.
