YAKIMA, WA - The officer involved in a fatal shooting at a Yakima car wash is cleared to go back to work next week.

State Patrol is looking into what led up to the deadly confrontation earlier this month. Police said the report won't be ready for three months.

Another Yakima officer involved in a shooting last Thursday on Viola Avenue can also return to work. Police said they responded to a domestic violence dispute and when the suspect refused to drop his rifle, an officer was forced to shoot.
