(Brookville, IN)--The two Brookville police officers who were forced to shoot and kill an armed man last month have now been cleared of any wrongdoing.  Prosecutors say Officers Lucas Richardson and Terry Mitchum acted appropriately when they shot and killed 29-year-old Donald Parker at a home on State Road 101 just north of Brookville.  Parker was involved in a domestic dispute, exited his home, and pointed a gun at the officers that had arrived.  Parker had a long criminal record, including a recent charge of battery against a public safety official.
