Racine Co. DA clears two officers of wrongdoing in fatal shooting

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - The Racine County district attorney cleared two police officers Monday, saying they were justified in killing a suicidal man 8 days ago.

DA Rich Chiapete did not identify the officers in a letter to police officials.

The officers were asked to check on 37-year-old Rajko Utvic, who reportedly had just taken 100 tablets of Ibuprofen.

Investigators said Utvic was bleeding from self-inflicted wounds when he covered himself with a blanket and lunged at the responding officers with a knife.

The officers reportedly tried settling him down with a Taser stun gun -- and when that didn't work, Utvic was shot and killed.
