(KSL News) -- Two West Valley City police officers are cleared of wrongdoing in a deadly shooting.
The Salt Lake County attorney's office says the circumstances were unfortunate, but the officers acted appropriately.
In July, 59-year old Bounmy Ousa approached an unmarked police car that was staking out a nearby home. The officers identified themselves told Ousa to return home.
Then officers say Ousa pulled from his waistband a "shiny, black, metallic object." Officer Steve Ward fired four times, killing Ousa.
The object turned out to be a flashlight.
Ousa's family is upset with Yocom's decision and plans to file a lawsuit next month.
