Police chief says officers justified in fatal Omaha shooting

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Omaha’s police chief says his officers were justified in fatally shooting an armed man on New Year’s Eve.

Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said he believes officers acted appropriately when they fatally shot 57-year-old Terry Hudson as he approached them with a raised handgun on Tuesday night.

After the confrontation, officers found a woman fatally shot inside the apartment where the domestic disturbance occurred that prompted the call to police.

Two officers shot at Hudson, killing him and wounding one of the officers in the leg.

Fifty-eight-year-old Dana Wells was found dead inside the apartment.

The incident will be reviewed by a grand jury.
