WINDHAM, Maine — Maine's attorney general says a police officer was acting in defense of himself and others when he fatally shot a 66-year-old man in Windham.
Janet Mills says that Cumberland County Deputy Sherriff Nicholas Mangino was legally justified in using deadly force against Stephen McKenney in April.
Investigators say that Mangino and other officers reported to McKenney's home after his wife had called police to say her husband was suicidal.
The attorney general's report says that Mangino and other officers tried several times to get McKenney to drop a gun outside of his home, but he refused. It says that Mangino fired two shots as McKenney advanced toward him in his driveway.
