Three Ector County Deputies Cleared Following October Shooting

ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Three Ector County sheriff's deputies have been cleared.

A Ector County grand jury decided Brandon Blake, Ryan Kelly and Matthew McCrury were justified in shooting Robert Humberto Medellin earlier this month.

The initial report says Medellin went to get items from a home when he began waving a machete at a woman there.

He took off before deputies got there but they caught up with him a short time later.

At that time, Medellin charged at the deputies with a knife.

Deputies opened fire hitting Medellin who died at the hospital.
