Fayetteville officers cleared

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 2009 at 1:35 PM

Channel 4 reports Fayetteville police have cleared two officers who fired nine shots Saturday trying to stop a man from stabbing his former girlfriend. One shot hit the pregnant woman in the head; none hit the attacker. She died of stab wounds and the gunshot wound.

Police say the internal investigation revealed the officers did not use deadly force until they realized Anderson was armed with a knife. They say "while it was unfortunate a bullet from an officers' service weapons struck Ms. Ulmer, it was determined they had no other options in their attempts to stop Mr. Anderson's assault."
