The Kern County Sheriff's Office Incident Review Board convened Wednesday to consider the use of force by Deputy Warren Martin and Deputy Cody Johnson in connection with an officer-involved shooting that occurred June 23.
The Incident Review Board determined that the use of force by the deputies was within Sheriff's Office policy.
The deputies fired at and struck a 17-year-old suspect who pointed a gun at them during a chase in east Bakersfield, deputies said. The teen suffered moderate injuries and was booked on suspicion of resisting arrest and brandishing a gun at a peace officer.
