GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay police officer, involved in his second deadly shooting, has been cleared by the Brown County district attorney.

Authorities say Officer Clint Beguhn fired ten rounds and killed 63-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel last month in the underground parking garage of an apartment where the man’s estranged wife lived.

WLUK-TV reports Beguhn and another officer were called to the apartment and found VandenHeuvel in the garage with a gun. Beguhn told investigators he fired when VandenHeuvel reached for his gun.

Beguhn was also cleared in a deadly shooting outside the Packer Stadium Lounge in 2011. The officer can now return to street duty.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay’s police chief says an officer acted appropriately when he fatally shot a man suspected of stalking his estranged wife last month.

Police Chief Tom Molitor on Wednesday called the shooting “a tragic event,” but said the officer’s actions were justified.

Sixty-three-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel died Dec. 16 after being struck by seven police bullets inside the garage of his wife’s apartment building.

Molitor says officers had responded to a 5:30 a.m. call from VandenHeuvel’s wife saying the man was in the building.

When officers demanded that VandenHeuvel show his hands, he reached for a handgun in his waistband. Officer Clint Beguhn fired 10 shots at him. The other officer did not fire.
