2021 Death of Ronald Zavaglia
On August 18, 2021, Clark and other officers responded after the department received several disturbance calls. One caller reported someone with a gun who was trying to break down a door.
Officers knocked on the door of the residence. Zavaglia answered the door with a rifle and raised it towards the officers. Zavaglia refused to comply with the officer's commands to drop the rifle.
Clark fired once, striking Zavaglia. Officers provided medical assistance until paramedics arrived. Zavaglia died at the scene.
The incident was recorded on body-worn camera video.
Clark was placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
A special grand jury did not return an indictment for Clark.
