WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WTVD) -- Two Wake Forest officers are back on the job following a deadly police-involved shooting last month.

The Wake County district attorney gave the green light for Officers David Cohen and Darryl Ragland to return to work.

Investigators said Cohen and Ragland shot 18-year-old David Johnson several times following a chase and crash last month.

They say Johnson got out of his car with a gun and ignored warnings to drop the weapon.

Johnson was taken to WakeMed where he later died. Officials said he was a former student at Wake Forest High School who withdrew earlier this year.

The SBI is still investigating the incident.
