LAFAYETTE – A Lafayette police officer was justified in firing her weapon during a case that ended in the deaths of two men, a review concludes.
The Lafayette Police Department Shooting Review Board convened Tuesday to discuss the actions of Officer Donna Gregorash, a three-year veteran of the force. The board made its recommendation to Chief Patrick Flannelly, who agreed with the decision that Gregorash’s actions were justified and within department policy.
On Thursday, Jan. 10, Gregorash opened fire after a truck veered toward police officers as the driver fired his gun. The driver, Steven K. Moseley and his passenger, Joel Hershman, died after the truck crashed into a home.
Police were originally called to the area in response to a report that a man was being held against his will.
Lafayette police will discuss the case Wednesday during a news conference.
