Police were Justified for Shooting Suspect


CHAMPAIGN IL – The Champaign County State's Attorney says police were justified in shooting a home invasion suspect last weekend.


Investigators say it was an appropriate use of force on, 25 year old, Anthony Brown. Two officers shot Brown after he refused to drop a gun and pointed it at them, inside the home in the 12 hundred block of Crispus Drive.


Brown remains in critical condition, and there is now a warrant for his arrest. He is charged with home invasion as an armed habitual criminal. He will not be arrested until his condition improves.
