The grand jury heard evidence and testimony and found the officers “acted in self-defense as well as defense of others,” according to a release from Prosecutor Mat Heck.

A 15-year-old male was by Centerville officers Feb. 2 behind the Centerville Police Department. The teen sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

“The two Centerville officers observed the teenager remove what they believed was a handgun from his waistband and point it at them,” a media release reads. “Due to the serious and imminent threat, the officers discharged their duty weapons.”

It was later discovered the pistol was an air gun that resembled an actual firearm.
