South Dakota's attorney general and DCI said a Sioux Falls officer was justified in the fatal shooting of a young man in early October.

Jacob Daniel Westberg, 22, was killed by a Sioux Falls Police Officer during a standoff with law enforcement.

"It is the conclusion of this investigation and the Attorney General that the officer was justified in firing his weapon and using lethal force," Attorney General Marty Jackley said. "I would like to thank the Sioux Falls Police Department, the officers involved and the witnesses for their complete cooperation in this investigation."
