Clark was killed in November of 2015 after police responded to a call about a woman being assaulted.

Ringgenberg and Schwarze were trying to arrest Clark, 24, when police say he reached for one of their guns during a struggle.

No charges were filed by Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, who came to the conclusion that the shooting was justified.
