SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – A Clark County grand jury declined to indict a sheriff’s deputy in a shooting incident at a bar.

Jurors found that Deputy Christopher Doolin was “reasonable and justified in his use of force” against Terrence Victoria. They found that Victoria did present an “imminent threat of serious physical harm or death towards Deputy Doolin and other people at the scene”.

Victoria was shot March 20 as he sat inside his car outside the Horseshoe Sports Bar and Billiards on East National Road.

Deputies said Victoria pointed a gun at officers, prompting Doolin to fire his weapon.

Victoria is recovering from his wounds.
