COLUMBUS, Ohio — Three Columbus police officers acted within policy last year when they shot two suspects in separate confrontations that occurred just days apart, a review board has determined.

Officer Thomas Pellegrini and a second officer were on bike patrol on the Near East Side on Jan. 4, 2012, when they heard shots in a nearby alley.
