YAKIMA, Wash.-- Toxicology results for a man shot and killed by a Yakima Police Officer in December show methamphetamine was in his system.

Stuart Morgan was killed after he came at an officer while holding a knife inside the Cascade/Senator Apartments on A Street.

The coroner says the amount of meth in Morgan's system wasn't enough to kill him, but it was substantial.
The officer involved has returned to duty.

An initial, internal review found the shooting justified.
A criminal review is still being processed.
