DOJ: Officer justified in deadly Oshkosh shooting

However, when he stopped by on July 31st, she had asked him to leave but he stole $400 cash from her purse along with her Chevy Mailbu car keys.

The woman whose last name is Chapman, called police but tucker was already heading to the garage to take the car.

When officer Roberts arrived, he tried to get Tucker out of the car.

Tucker drove the car out of the half-open garage, turned the car around and started driving toward officer Achterberg.

Achterberg feared for his life and fired 11 shots into the car.

Tucker was hit twice by the bullets, one in the shoulder and the other in his leg.

Tucker fled the scene and officers found him bleeding in a shed, away from the car.

He was taken to the hospital where he died from his shoulder wound.

A toxicology report showed Tucker had many drugs in his system, including meth, fentanyl, cocaine, and more.

Both officers are still on paid administrative leave and will be eased back into work with the police department.
