No More Reviews Likely In Fatal Keokuk County Deputy Shooting
SIGOURNEY, Iowa (AP) — Officials say no more reviews are likely over the actions of the Keokuk County sheriff's office leading up to a shooting that left a deputy and another man dead in southeast Iowa.
Jeffrey Krier who had a history of mental illness, killed Deputy Eric Stein on April 4 during a standoff at Krier's home near Sigourney. Krier was killed by officers.
The attorney general's office says officers were justified in killing Krier.
The Des Moines Register says Monday that no other reviews are planned. Jessica Lown of the Iowa Department of Public Safety says the agency doesn't have the authority to review another law enforcement agency's policies and procedures.
Keokuk County Supervisor Michael Berg says how Sheriff Jeff Shipley handled the situation hasn't given him pause.
