The Denver district attorney on Tuesday cleared seven officers of criminal wrongdoing for firing 13 rounds last month at an armed man who allegedly assaulted his wife prior to the gunfire.

Lorenzo Pasillas-Hernandez, 60, suffered gunshot wounds in his right leg, an entry wound in the stomach and exit wound in his back. Pasillas-Hernandez also suffered a wound in his jaw that investigators believe was self-inflicted, District Attorney Mitch Morrissey wrote in a letter to police Chief Gerry Whitman that explained his decision not to pursue a criminal case against the officers.
