An independent prosecutor has ruled three Superior police officers were justified when they shot a 19-year-old man when he threatened them with a wrench last October. Joshua Michael Farmer claimed the metal object was a gun just before he was shot. Barron County District Attorney Brian Wright made the decision at the request of Douglas County officials. Farmer is charged with three felonies and two misdemeanors. He was hit by six shots but suffered non-lethal injuries.
