TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor says law enforcement officers acted correctly when they shot and killed a man who killed two Topeka police officers.

Taylor announced Wednesday that his investigation into the December 2012 shooting of 22-year-old David Tiscareno was closed.

Tiscareno was shot by a Topeka police officer and two Kansas Bureau of Investigation officers on Dec. 17 after a standoff at a house.

That was a day after Tiscareno shot and killed Police Cpl. David Gogian and Officer Jeff Atherly at a Topeka grocery store.

WIBW reports (http://bit.ly/12VisYX ) Taylor says his investigation did not reveal Tiscareno's motive for shooting the officers. But he says Tiscareno was high on methamphetamine and had earlier posted a challenge to police on his Facebook page and said he welcomed his death.
