DA: Officers justified in fatal shooting in western Colorado



GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Prosecutors say officers were justified when they fatally shot a man in western Colorado. The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports two Mesa County deputies and two Grand Junction officers involved in the March death of 51-year-old Steve Alire were cleared. Investigators say a group playing basketball at a school told them Alire confronted them with a rifle before returning to his nearby home. Officers went to the home, and Alire came out with a rifle, which he said was a pellet gun, threw it on the ground and went back inside. He was shot when he came out again and brought the weapon up toward an officer.
