Three Richfield police officers were placed on paid administrative leave following the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Jeffrey O'Conner.
The Associated Press reports Sgt. Mark Shelley, a 20-veteran of the Richfield Police Department; Officer Tom Blair, a 23-year veteran; and Officer Brian Rogge, a 16-year veteran were placed of leave, which is standard procedure.
Authorities say O'Conner was mentally disturbed and wielding a knife when an officer was forced to shoot him Friday. O'Conner was living with his aunt in Richfield.
