A fact-finding review took place Tuesday, in connection to the shooting of an Army veteran earlier this year.

The reviews are held to share facts about the case with the public, since the district attorney's office already preliminarily determined that no criminal prosecution of the officers involved would be appropriate.  

It happened on April 11. Police say that Efren Trujillo-Soriano got into a fight with another man. The police responded to a report about the fight and confronted Trujuillo-Soriano.

Police say that Trujuillo-Soriano shot at them and they returned fire. He was shot five times.

Trujuillo-Soriano spent time in Afghanistan while in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged.  Police say during their investigation, they learned Trujuillo-Soriano suffered from PTSD. 

It could still take a few more weeks until the District Attorney makes that final determination on what will happen to the officers involved.
