KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A grand jury says a Klamath Falls police detective was justified in using deadly force against Matthew David Borner last week.
The shooting happened August 20. Police say Borner ran from a building and did not stop when police told him to. They say he took something black out of his pocket that officers believed was a gun.
Four rounds were fired and two of the shots hit Borner in the chest area. Borner died at the scene. The investigation revealed that Borner did not have a firearm in his pocket, but the grand jury has cleared the officer who fired the shots.
