Deshawn Trae McGee, 24, is charged with improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, a felony, and discharge of a firearm, a misdemeanor, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report released Wednesday.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 27.

McGee was shot June 6 by Dayton police officer Zachary Banks after he got out of a vehicle on Verona Road while armed with a loaded handgun, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said in June.

A grand jury in October declined to indict Banks.

McGee was shot multiple times but his injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

Police were dispatched to the area of a Shell gas station to investigate a report of shots fired. When police approached a vehicle, they said McGee stepped out with the gun.

The incident was the first officer-involved shooting in Dayton of 2018.
