ELKHART Three officers involved a fatal shooting are back on the job.

Dan Mayer, Jason Ray and Jason Gruber were cleared by both Indiana State Police and Elkhart Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division.

According to The Elkhart Truth they had been on paid leave, since shooting 31-year-old Christopher Ryckeart in November. They returned to work the second week of February.

Ryckeart had led the officers on a chase to Michigan and back in a stolen vehicle. The officers fired shots when it appeared that he was trying to back into them.
