The fatal shooting of an unarmed, naked man by a Glen Ellyn police officer was "tragic" but justified because of the man's violent attacks on his infant son and the police officer, DuPage County State's Attorney Joseph Birkett said Wednesday.

Benjamin Uwumarogie died April 26 after being shot once in the head by Officer Jason Bradley, who had answered a 911 call reporting domestic violence at Uwumarogie's Glen Ellyn apartment.
