BEAUMONT -

A Jefferson County grand jury has cleared two Port Arthur police officers of facing any criminal charges in a 2013 shooting.

Officers Kacey Frank and Donald Suarez were involved in the fatal shooting of a woman late last year  Frank fired a single shot after Rosa Flores-Lopez confronted the officers with a knife during a family disturbance call.

Police say Lopez refused to put the knife down and was tazered before the shooting.

Grand jurors found the officers acted in self-defense.
