EUGENE, Ore. -- The shooting of a man following a domestic violence incident has been ruled lawful by Lane County District Attorney Patty Perlow.

Muhsin Sharif, 26, was shot and critically injured by Eugene Police on Nov. 30. Officers had reason to believe Sharif had violated a restraining order, which means an arrest must be made.

Perlow said officers found Sharif running in an alley with a knife and he reportedly yelled, “I will kill you,” repeatedly.

Sharif was shot twice, once in the upper left chest and once in his left hip. He was taken to the hospital following the shooting and was later charged with assault, criminal mistreatment, strangulation, and unlawful use of a weapon. All four of those charges are felonies.
