Five officers involved in a deadly shooting in Cedar Park this June were cleared of any wrongdoing.
A grand jury said Thursday the officers were justified in using deadly force against Charles O'Hara, a suspect who police say pointed a shotgun at the officers.
The officers, Sgt. Bobby Vernengo and officers James Quinn, Coy Brown, Kristy Britt and Robert Harris have been on administrative duty pending the completion of the investigation and Grand Jury's verdict.
On June 28, the officers were called to 400 Block of North Rainbow Bridge back in response to a 911 call from an elderly woman who said her son, 59 year old Charles O'Hara was breaking things around the house.
When officers arrived they found O'Hara armed.
Shots were exchanged and O'Hara was shot and killed.
The Texas Rangers and Cedar Park Police were investigating the incident.
