A Las Cruces Police officer has been cleared after firing his gun at a suspect during a domestic disturbance. 

It happened in September at a home on Lees Drive. A 14-year-old girl called 911 saying 34-year-old Charles Campolla was intoxicated and armed with a gun. 

Video shows investigators telling Campolla to put his hands up. 

They say Officer D’Anthony Roohr shot three times when Campolla pointed the gun at officers. 

Officer Roohr has since returned to duty.
