Officer involved shooting ruled justified


Metro police officers were legally justified when they used deadly force during a traffic stop about seven months ago.

That's what a Chatham County grand jury found Monday.

GBI says four Metro officers made a traffic stop at 37th and Ogeechee in October. That's when they say the driver, 25-year-old Tyrie Cuyler, pulled out a gun and shot at the officers.

Those officers shot back, and killed Cuyler.

Two police officers were also shot, but were okay.

Again, a grand jury just deemed this officer involved shooting was legally justified.
