Ames Police Officer Cleared of Wrongdoing in Shooting Following Chase



The officer who fired shots that killed a man leading a police chase in Ames has been cleared of any wrongdoing. Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes says Ames police officer Adam McPherson was justified in using deadly force in shooting Tyler Comstock. After reviewing video of the chase and conducting interviews, Holmes says he believes the officer ``acted reasonably under very difficult circumstances.'' Ames police and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation played patrol car dashboard videos at a Thursday news conference showing the white pickup Comstock
was driving run through intersections, intentionally ram police cars, and drive recklessly on the Iowa State University campus.
