Report: Vt trooper's use of deadly force justified

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- An investigation has concluded that a Vermont state trooper was justified in the use of deadly force when he shot a man in a Danville school bus last year.

William Mahoney of St. Johnsbury was shot by the trooper on Sept. 18 after he allegedly stole a vehicle and then hid in the bus and broadcast threats on a school radio.

Mahoney was shot by Sgt. Brian May after what police said were threatening moves toward May -- he appeared to be drawing a weapon from a holster, despite repeated commands to stop.

State Attorney General William Sorrell and Caledonia County State's Attorney Lisa Warren released a report Wednesday concluding May was legally justified in firing his gun at Mahoney.

Mahoney is facing prosecution by the Caledonia County attorney's office.
