A New Jersey grand jury cleared police officers Wednesday of any wrongdoing in a case in which officers shot and killed a couple who killed three civilians and an officer. 

On Dec. 10, 2019, David Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50, killed police detective Joseph Seals in a shootout at a cemetery. The couple also killed three people at a supermarket a short time later.

The grand jury declined to indict the police officers who engaged in a nearly three-hour-long firefight with the couple once arriving on the scene. 

According to the Daily Voice, New Jersey's Attorney General said the grand jury found the actions of the officers involved to be justified in order to protect public safety.
