The Copley officer involved in the shooting death of Michael Hance has been cleared from any wrongdoing.
Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh sent a letter to Copley Township Police Chief Michael Mier stating that officer Ben Campbell did not violate any Ohio statutes or federal laws during the Copley shooting rampage.
Walsh says that officers can use deadly force when they think a suspect will cause serious physical harm to another person.
Campbell was found to have a reasonable and justifiable belief that Hance would continue to shoot at people after Hance shot seven people and then refused to comply with police officers to drop his weapon.
Keith Lavery, the neighbor and former police officer who also shot at Hance in an attempt to end the shooting spree, was also found to be justified in his use of force.
