Antigo, WI, United States /

The shooting and killing of a man who police say fired shots at an officer, was justified, according to the Lincoln County District Attorney. Shawn Igers was shot and killed on February 27th outside Merrill. An officer who responded to a vehicle in a ditch had come upon Igers with a gun. He ordered Igers to put the weapon down and then fired at the ground near his truck. Police say Igers fired at the officer, who fired back with several rounds of his own. Igers died from his injuries.
