In brief: Officers in shooting cleared for duty

Two Spokane police officers have been cleared to return to work after a confrontation last week in which the officers shot and killed a Deer Park man. Police policy requires that officers involved in a shooting take a three-day break and meet with the department’s psychologist for a clearance to return to duty. Senior Patrol Officer Dan Lesser and Sgt. Brent Austin were evaluated Tuesday and were to return at their next scheduled shifts, said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe, police spokeswoman.
