Two Marion County law enforcement members were cleared of wrongdoing in a shooting that occurred in early July.


A Grand Jury returned a No Bill of No Indictment against Officer Joe McDonald, of the Marion Police Department and Major Christy Utley, of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.


Sheriff Tim Bailey said he was grateful that the grand jury cleared the two. He stated their action saved lives during an incident on July 3.


The officers were involved in the shooting of an armed man that left him injured in the 500 block of Patterson Street in the city.
