OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two Oklahoma City police officers have been cleared for their actions during a shootout that left a woman dead and four people wounded.
The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1AKDXxI ) that District Attorney David Prater found Officer Clint Music and Sgt. Jeff Locke justified in opening fire during the Oct. 8 shootout in Oklahoma City.
The incident began when police were called by a woman said she had been kidnapped.
Police say officers were directed to a motel room where 39-year-old Shane Rhea opened fire on them and took 30-year-old Samantha Monden hostage. Rhea forced Monden to walk with him to Interstate 35 where he eventually shot and killed her before he was shot and wounded by police.
Another man in the motel room and two police officers were also wounded by gunfire.
