A veteran state trooper was justified in shooting a drug suspect from Orange who pointed a rifle at him and refused to drop it, the Northwestern district attorney’s office said Thursday. Corey Navarette, 23, was fatally shot at his Orange apartment on July 3 as a drug task force acted on a search warrant in an investigation of illegal sales of prescription painkillers. The prosecutors’ report said Trooper Michael Baker acted to defend himself and other troopers after Navarette twice refused to put down his gun. Baker fired three times, and two shots hit Navarette.
