REXFORD - A Lincoln County man is dead and authorities say they're investigating whether the suspected shooter was justified in his use of force.

A release from the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says Dennis Stacy, 59, was found dead on Saturday, Aug. 17.

They say Justin Brewer was arrested for "mitigated deliberate homicide" but was released after investigators found that his use of force may have been justified.

The case is under review by the Lincoln County Attorney's Office.
