DENVER — A Denver police officer used reasonable force when he shot and killed a man walking through a residential neighborhood firing a gun, the District Attorney's office said Monday.

Officer Kevin Ford shot Nicholas Alvarado Morales, 29, after Morales leveled his own gun at the officer early Dec. 13, according to the DA's report.
