Clayton Police Officers Back At Work After Shooting
Posted April 9, 2004
CLAYTON, N.C. — Two Clayton police officers are back on the job two months after shooting a man.
Manuel Pena was shot several times in the shoulder in February. At the time, officers were looking for a man who escaped his probation officer.
When Pena heard the officers, he went outside with a shotgun. They fired after reportedly telling Pena to drop his weapon.
The district attorney reviewed the case and decided the officers acted within the law.
