Police in Solon, Ohio, announced that the investigation into the March 2013 fatal shooting of Kevin Bailey, 22, by Officers Steven Davis and Nicholas Kline is complete, and the officers have been cleared of any wrongdoing. The police dashcam of Bailley’s dramatic last stand was released today.

Both the prosecutor’s office and a grand jury agreed that “there were no improprieties in the officer’s actions and that the use of force was based on the actions of the suspect.”

In the video of what seems like a routine traffic stop, Bailey emerges from his car, gun blazing, and fires on the officers while they are in their vehicle. They return fire, killing him.
