GREEN BAY, Wis. — A Green Bay police officer, involved in his second deadly shooting, has been cleared by the Brown County district attorney.

Authorities say Officer Clint Beguhn fired ten rounds and killed 63-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel last month in the underground parking garage of an apartment where the man's estranged wife lived.

WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/K8jwWX ) reports Beguhn and another officer were called to the apartment and found VandenHeuvel in the garage with a gun. Beguhn told investigators he fired when VandenHeuvel reached for his gun.

Beguhn was also cleared in a deadly shooting outside the Packer Stadium Lounge in 2011. The officer can now return to street duty.
