A hearing on whether a 17-year-old robbery suspect from Dayton shot by an off-duty Miami Twp. police officer will face adult charges has been delayed.
A hearing for the Dunbar High School student is accused of robbing a Miamisburg gas station Feb. 5 had been scheduled for this afternoon. But it has been rescheduled for June 22, according to Montgomery County Juvenile Court Judge Anthony Capizzi’s office.
The teen is charged in juvenile court with seven counts of aggravated robbery, one count of felonious assault on a police officer, one count of impersonating an officer and a weapons charge, according to court records.
The teen was twice wounded in the right arm by James Swearingen after the off-duty officer fired at the suspect, who was seeking to flee the volatile Miamisburg crime scene scene near Ohio 725 and Interstate 75 through attempted carjackings, authorities said.
A grand jury cleared Swearingen of any charges.
The charges against the teen includes an accusation that he “did discharge the firearm at a peace officer or corrections officer while committing the offense,” court records show.
The suspect remains in juvenile detention.
