Deputy cleared in Aldo Alvarez shooting

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County State Attorney has ruled Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Joshua McGehee was justified in shooting Aldo Alvarez outside of the deputy's home last May.

The deputy says Alvarez, who lived down the street, came at him and attacked him.

Alvarez underwent surgery and recovered and was placed on house arrest.

In November, a pair of psychiatrists determined Alvarez was unfit to stand trial. 

They said he could not understand the court system.

Last week, a judge ordered Alvarez be committed to a state facility for treatment.
