VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The police officer who shot and killed a man reaching for a gun in February was justified in using deadly force, according to a review by the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney.
Jonathan Garrett of Chesapeake was killed by Officer Christian K. Wright during a struggle with the officer behind a convenience store, the review said. Wright fired his gun six times, hitting Garrett twice.
