Panel examines Washington state deputy’s shooting of driver

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state panel of prosecutors will examine an investigation into a fatal shooting of a Black motorist by a Clark County deputy in early February. The investigation indicated that the officer fired as he was grappling with the driver, who had refused orders to get out of his car and instead put the vehicle in motion. The Columbian newspaper reported that the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys created the panel to help assess whether the deputy’s actions were legally justified in the death of 30-year-old Jenoah Donald. The case will be the first reviewed under the new model.
