Friday afternoon, he was arraigned on those charges. The grand jury also found officer’s actions were justified, as a lawful use of deadly force. Police said Negrete, a veteran, pointed a knife at a VA employee.
Police at the VA tried non-lethal methods to subdue him, but ultimately fired a single shot – hitting him in the chest.
No plea was entered today, but Negrete’s attorney indicated he will plead ‘not guilty’ to the charges.
