The two white police officers who were involved in the shooting death of a black man had five complaints made against them and were cleared in all but one.

Records made available to the media on Thursday show that officer Blane Salamoni had three complaints made against him and was issued a letter of caution for his involvement in a "preventable crash" on June 13, 2012. The other two complaints involved use of force and a vehicle pursuit.

Lake had two use of force complaints and was exonerated in both. One included a police shooting in December 2014. Court documents show Lake told detectives that he fired six or seven times when a suspect refused to drop his gun, threatened to kill himself and pointed his revolver at officers. The man was wounded by police.

The other complaint happened Jan. 28, 2015.
