clausen jeffrey Grand Jury:  Deadly Shooting Justified

A Washington County Grand Jury has cleared four law enforcement officers in the fatal shooting of a suspect last summer.

 

Jeffrey Clausen was shot after trying to sell a rifle to an undercover officer in Cottage Grove in July.  The 33-year-old St. Paul Park man was a convicted felon and was not allowed to possess firarms.  Four members of the Washington County Special Response Team  opened fire when it appeared Clausen was holding a gun when he exited a car during a traffic stop.  He died at the scene.

A Washington County Grand Jury has ruled the shooting was a justifiable use of deadly force.
