DA's Office Finds Nick Rodin Shooting "Justified"

A Crook County Sheriff’s Deputy has been cleared of any wrongdoing after a fatal shooting in early February. The District Attorney called the shooting “justified”. On February 4th, Nick Rodin called 9-1-1. He told the dispatcher his name, that he had a warrant, and that someone should come get him before he - quote, "flips out and hurts someone". Deputy Steven Hatcher found Rodin that afternoon on a gravel road in Juniper Canyon. The altercation was caught on the deputy’s body camera footage as Rodin defies orders to lay down and keep his hands visible. Rodin told the dispatcher he had a pistol and a knife. The D-A’s office released body cam footage from the tense moments before Deputy Steven Hatcher shot Rodin who was shot twice after defying orders to get on the ground, and appearing to reach toward his waistband. Police did not find a knife or gun on Rodin at the scene.
