Officials say Officer Justified in Shooting

Authorities say a police officer was justified in fatally shooting a man who was carrying garden shears wrapped in a T-shirt and claiming he had an explosive at a southern New Jersey home. Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae issued the finding after a review of the July 2018 shooting in Vineland. Her office determined it wasn’t necessary to present the matter to a grand jury because no material facts were in dispute. Authorities have said Vineland Sgt. Brian Armstrong shot 37-year-old Rashaun Washington three times when Washington charged toward him.
