Her office determined “the only reasonable conclusion was the officer’s actions were justified,” she said.

The shooting of 38-year-old Alfred Olango last fall in El Cajon was a reasonable use of force, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said. He was unarmed but he deserved to die.
Olango extended both arms “simulating the firing of a weapon directly at the officer,” who ducked and fired four shots, Dumanis said.
