Burlington man killed in officer-involved shooting passed from single gunshot wound 

After a thorough investigation, the Iowa Department of Justice Office of the Attorney General has found that the use of deadly force against Marquis Jones was warranted, and no criminal charges are "justified or warranted" against the two officers involved.
The patrol video shows Jones make no attempt to engage the officers but it is clear that he held "a black bag in his left hand." After a chase via patrol car and on foot, Officer Riffel tackled Jones and noticed a gun in Jones' right hand. After a struggle, another chase on foot, and several attempts to disarm Jones, Officer Chiprez catches up to Jones in an alleyway. That's where Officer Chiprez fired his gun, police said. Jones was shot in the chest, brought to Great River Medical Center, and pronounced dead.
