Morrow allegedly pointed a gun at the officers when he opened the door, according to police. 

Evans shot Morrow, hitting him once in the chest and once in the side, prosecutors said. 

Officers found a 9mm Hi-Point fully loaded handgun and a knife believed to have been used to slash the tires, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said in a previous news conference. 

Morrow has been indicted on a case connected to the incident. He is facing multiple counts of having weapons under disability, according to prosecutors.
