The Vermont Attorney General’s office and the Windham County state’s attorney say last November’s shooting of a Townshend woman by state police was justified. The two offices have completed their investigation into the November 12 shooting of 41 year old Kimberly Greene.

According to the investigation, Greene came out of her home waving a gun at police. She was shot in the leg after she refused to put the weapon down. The three police officers told her numerous times to drop the gun.

Prosecutors say the two police officers who shot at Greene believed she posed an imminent danger to themselves or others.
