A grand jury decided the actions taken by police officers in a November fatal shooting were justified.
On Nov. 22, Marsha Carllson led Grand Island Police officers on a pursuit. Carllson rammed a road block near Seedling Mile Road. She continued on foot when her vehicle was damaged. Police attempted to stop her with a taser gun, but it was ineffective. When Carllson began raising a gun, four officers fired their weapons, killing her.
Pete Carllson, Marsha's father, says he agrees with the grand jury's decision. He also says he has compassion for the officers who were forced to take his daughter's life. Carllson says with as far as the situation had progressed, he would not fault anyone for doing what they did.
An administrative investigation conducted by the Grand Island Police Department will also look into the shooting.
