A Florida attorney says the use of deadly force by officers during a hostage situation at the Bay County Jail in September was justified.
Two prisoners and a hostage were wounded, but state attorney Jim Appleman says the gunfire was justified.
The standoff began when authorities responded to an uprising at the Bay County Jail.
Four-inmates held a correction officer and three nurses hostage for about 12 hours.
Shots were fired when one of the inmates held a scalpel to the neck of a nurse.
Sheriff Frank McKeithen says the officers probably saved the woman's life.
