Joshua Welborn

The man who was shot by a Lee County Sheriff's Deputy last month pleaded not guilty to the three criminal charges against him. Joshua Welborn of Fort Madison is accused of burglary, criminal mischief, and assault on a peace officer.

The Iowa Attorney General's Office announced Thursday afternoon it had completed its investigation of an officer-involved shooting that happened in Lee County on June 12. The result:  the AG's office believes the actions taken by the two sheriff's deputies involved in the incident were legally justified.
