The Sheboygan County District Attorney, Joe DeCecco, says the shooting of James Knee by a Sheboygan police officer during a traffic stop on September 3rd was justified. "It was clearly a situation where the officer had no choice " DeCecco said. Tuesday's witness statements, dash cam video and 32-year-old Officer Brandon Munnik's account show the officer believed his life was in imminent danger when he fatally shot James Knee of Two Rivers. Police Chief Christopher Domagalski says Munnik stopped a car for a traffic violation at about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 3. He says Knee got out with his hand behind his back, refused the officer's commands and was stunned with a Taser gun. Domagalski says Knee then produced a handgun and threatened the officer before he was shot twice. One witness, who was watching from a second floor room, says she saw knee get out of the car with a gun in his hand. "It really took him to the edge there where he thought he may not go home that night " said Sheboygan Police Chief Christopher Domagalski. Officer Brandon Munnik is a seven year veteran of the department, and has been cleared to return to patrol duty.
