DUNN COUNTY, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Dunn County District Attorney says the use of deadly force by three law enforcement officers in Jan. was justified.

The Department of Justice also announced Thursday that no charges will be filed in the death of 45-year-old Nicholas Ciccarelli. they released this video of the Jan. 21 shooting Thursday.

District Attorney Andrea Nodolf says the shooting by a Dunn County Sheriff’s Deputy and two Menomonie Police Officers were justified acts of self-defense and the defense of others. Investigators say Ciccarelli broke into a home, threatened the person who lived there, and fired a gun. The person in the home wasn’t hurt. Ciccarelli then stole that person’s car. Officers pulled the vehicle over and say Ciccarelli got out of the driver’s seat, approached officers and moved his gun towards one of them.

Nodolf says they were left with no other choice likely due to the very high level of methamphetamine in Cicarelli’s blood.
