Officers Cleared in Deadly Shooting

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Five Metro Police officers have been cleared in a deadly shooting.

District Attorney Steve Wolfson says the officers’ actions in the April death of 49-year-old Sharmel Edwards were “not criminal in nature.”

Edwards was driving a stolen car when she was pulled over in the northwest valley.

Police say the woman pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officers, who shot and killed her.

Witnesses say Edwards ignored orders to surrender.
