The Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy who shot and killed an off-duty Vancouver police officer last year won’t face criminal charges, the sheriff’s office said Thursday.
Deputy Jonathan Feller fired at Officer Donald Sahota multiple times on Jan. 29, 2022 within moments of responding to Sahota’s Battle Ground home on the report of an armed robbery, mistaking Sahota for the robbery suspect.
The decision by Clark County Prosecuting Attorney Tony Golik not to charge Feller comes after a panel of five prosecuting attorneys from Washington deadlocked on the question of whether Feller’s actions last year were reasonable under the circumstances.
Feller was also involved in the 2020 fatal shooting of Kevin E. Peterson Jr. of Camas.
