Southern Alberta police officers cleared in shooting that injured man

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Three southern Alberta police officers have been cleared in a shooting that injured a man.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says officers from the Medicine Hat Police Force were justified in their actions and no charges will be laid.

Police were responding to a gun call at a home last September when a man came out and officers fired shots during an altercation.

The man was immediately treated and taken to hospital.

He has since been charged and the matter is before the courts.
