A police officer shot a man dead in a fight over what some media are alleging was an "illegal forced demolition" in Northeast China on Friday.

An investigation team established by Panjin, Liaoning province, determined on Saturday that the police officer who pulled the trigger, Zhang Yan, was justified in his use of a firearm. The team found that the man who was shot, Wang Shujie, 36, resorted to violence while attempting to hinder police from performing their duties.

"The officer's use of the gun was in compliance with the law," the team said.
