MINNEAPOLIS  -- The head of the Minneapolis police union says it's about time that two officers were fully cleared in the fatal shooting of a black man last November.

Bob Kroll says Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze have been through nearly a year of investigations following the death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark.

Both Schwarze and Ringgenberg have been on desk duty since returning to work after the incident, but Kroll expects them to return to patrols with the internal review complete.

Kroll says it's been "devastating" for them.

Chief Janee Harteau said Friday that the officers followed proper procedure.

Clark's death sparked weeks of protests on the city's north side.
