ZUMBROTA, Minn. (AP) — Investigators have cleared a Zumbrota police officer in the fatal shooting of a man who shot and wounded his estranged wife.

The Post-Bulletin reports the investigation concluded that Officer Robert Jarrett’s use of deadly force was justified.

Jarrett was called on Jan. 31 to keep the peace as the wife of 37-year-old Thomas Robinson moved out of their home. Robinson pulled a gun and shot his wife, Rebecca. The officer then shot and killed Thomas Robinson.

Rebecca Robinson is expected to make a full recovery.

Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster reviewed the case to avoid a conflict of interest for Goodhue County.
