DA: Police justified in shooting
WERNERSVILLE (AP) — Authorities say that police officers who fatally shot a 20-year-old Wernersville man acted properly. The Berks County District Attorney’s Office said that Jonathan D. Rutkowski was shot by officers July 27 along the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks after he pointed two pistols at police, the Reading Eagle reported. District Attorney John T. Adams said in a statement that the officers involved demonstrated great restraint and their use of deadly force was justified.
Rutkowski never fired his two guns but ignored repeated orders to drop the weapons.
