OVERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. — In Wyoming County, the district attorney ruled Monday that a police officer who shot and killed a man last fall was justified.

The district attorney said the man went after the officer with a fire poker, putting the officer in danger. But the D.A. does say police mistakes were made.
