Officer cleared in fatal Wedgwood shooting

Posted by Kate Bergman on April 27th, 2011

An inquest into the shooting death of 42 year-old Ariel Rosenfeld by a Seattle Police officer at the Wedgwood QFC in August is complete and the inquest jury believes Officer Chris Anderson had reason to believe his life was in danger, the Seattle Times is reporting.

According to our news partners, the six-person inquest jury unanimously agreed that Rosenfeld fled after officers ordered him to stop, but they were split on whether Rosenfeld complied or attempted to comply with the officer’s command to drop his weapon before he was shot.

You can read more on this in the Seattle Times.
