MONROE, Mich. – The Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office is calling the action of a state trooper who opened fire on a knife-wielding man justifiable.
Video footage showed the man rushing toward the trooper on a busy south dixie highway. What investigators say you do not see is the trooper repeatedly asking the man to drop the large knife.
The encounter lasted a few seconds. Witnesses told investigators that the trooper did everything he could to diffuse the situation before firing his weapon.
