The Pima County (Ariz.) Sheriff's SWAT officers who fatally shot a 26-year-old former Marine who pointed a rifle at them have been exonerated of any wrongdoing by the Pima County Attorney's Office.

Tactical officers fired 71 shots at Jose Guerena, while serving a warrant in a drug investigation at his Tucson-area home. Guerena was at home with his wife and two children at the time, and may have said, "I've got something for you" to officers who entered the house.

Of the 71 shots, 22 struck Guerena.

A report by Chief Criminal Deputy Attorney David Berkman concluded that Guerena pointed the rifle at officers, who "needed to take immediate action to stop the deadly threat against them."
