Officers cleared in shooting

Authorities say two law enforcement officers in Mayes County have been cleared to return to work after the fatal shooting of a handcuffed man. Police Chief Vince Stoyanoski says a preliminary report has cleared the two officers in the Jan. 29 shooting death of William Joseph Perneau, 29. Authorities say officers were trying to interview Perneau in a motel room as part of a drug investigation when he managed to pull a gun from his waistband and fired at the officers. The officers weren't hit. A Salina police officer returned fire, killing Perneau. Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said the officers' names won't be released unless they are arrested or charged.
