WOBURN, Mass. — Investigators have determined that a Massachusetts state trooper who shot and killed a suspected drug dealer in February was justified in his use of force.

The Middlesex district attorney's office said in a statement Wednesday it determined that Trooper Shawn McIntyre fired at the car to protect himself as it drove toward him.

McIntyre fired two shots, killing the driver, 21-year-old Roger Reyes Padilla.
