Two Milwaukee police officers have been cleared in the fatal shooting of a man who fired shots at them last October.
Chief Deputy Milwaukee County District Attorney Kent Lovern said Officers Brady Baker and Edgar Rodriguez were justified in using deadly force against Alonzo L. Smith after Smith opened fire on them outside an apartment complex.

Investigators said the 31-year-old Smith was in his car when officers ordered him to show his hands and surrender. Smith began firing at the officers, who eventually shot him after he refused commands to drop his weapon.
The incident happened Oct. 10 and Smith died Oct. 17.
