Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley has found a California Highway Patrol officer's use of force was lawful in the July officer-involved shooting of Michael Ledesma, 18, near Los Alamos.
The CHP officer shot Ledesma on Highway 135 after investigators say Ledesma confronted an officer with a knife.
A woman had called 911 from a car saying Ledesma was threatening her. Ledesma is accused of attacking the woman with a knife. He faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon and child endangerment. Investigators say a toddler was in the car.
