STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Payne County District Attorney Tom Lee says two Cushing police officers were justified when they shot and killed an 18-year-old Tulsa man.
Lee said Thursday that Rabih Ozeir refused the officers' orders to drop a handgun he was carrying and that he was shot when he pointed the gun at the officers on Jan. 10.
Ozeir died the following day at a Tulsa hospital.
Documents obtained by 2NEWS name Randy Evans and Rachel Hentges as the involved officers. Lee says Evans and Hentges, currently on paid administrative leave, should be allowed to return to duty.
Cushing police have said the officers were investigating a disturbance call outside of a chiropractic clinic and gym when the encountered Ozeir in a parking lot.
Ozeir's mother Olgua Hill says time hasn't brought healing.
"It's getting harder. Because every day, it's like we miss him more," she said.
Surveillance cameras caught the final moments of Robby's life inside of Simpson's Gym in Cushing.
But apparently no camera outside caught the actual shooting. And police say they don't have dash-cam video.
"I just want the truth, I want evidence. I want videos, I want to see the gun that they're talking about," Hill said.
The OSBI still hasn't released any information on Robby's gun. Some witnesses described it as a toy.

Olga wants to know more even though it hurts.
"Rabih never hurt anyone. He was never in a fight. He was just a gentle giant," Hill said.
