Officers cleared after fatal shooting of Flat Rock woman
HENDERSON COUNTY, N.C. -- Three deputies are cleared after shooting and killing a 60-year-old Flat Rock woman in self-defense.
District Attorney Greg Newman said he's reviewed the SBI's investigation into the death of Kay Campbell and has officially cleared the officers. He said wanted to release what direction he saw the case going as quickly as possible.
Campbell had a history of mental illness. In April, authorities on scene determined she needed to be committed. She then pulled a gun and deputies fearing for their lives shot in self-defense.
Newman said while Campbell's death was tragic, he feels the shooting was justifiable.
