A Wisconsin prosecutor says no officers will be charged in the fatal shooting of a man outside a bar near Sparta last month.

The Monroe County DA says the officers’ actions were lawful. Authorities were called Nov. 5 to the Cotter Pin in Leon. A woman called 911, saying her husband had choked her and put a loaded gun to his head. Michael Nguyen was found outside the bar and ignored commands to drop his gun.

Nguyen smashed a bar window and fired a round. An officer shot Nguyen as the suspect came out from behind a State Patrol squad car.
