Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor's office has issued a final report on a December shooting incident that left two Topeka police officers dead. David Tiscareno, the man alleged to have killed the officers, was fatally shot just hours later by police following an overnight standoff. Taylor says the police were acting within the law when they shot Tiscareno. Taylor says three people were with Tiscareno during the shooting of the two officers, but they were not involved and won't be charged with crimes.

Tiscareno allegedly shot and killed officers Jeff Atherly and David Gogian "GOH-ghee-un" in the parking lot of a grocery store in Topeka. The officers had been called by a store employee, and were investigating a vehicle in which Tiscareno was a passenger.
