GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A Green Bay police officer, involved in his second deadly shooting, has been cleared by the Brown County district attorney.
 
Authorities say Officer Clint Beguhn fired ten rounds and killed 63-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel last month in the underground parking garage of an apartment where the man's estranged wife lived.
 
WLUK-TV reports Beguhn and another officer were called to the apartment and found VandenHeuvel in the garage with a gun. Beguhn told investigators he fired when VandenHeuvel reached for his gun.
 
Beguhn was also cleared in a deadly shooting outside the Packer Stadium Lounge in 2011. The officer can now return to street duty.
