A Dayton police officer who shot a 40-year-old man in October 2018 will not face criminal charges, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
A Montgomery County Grand Jury declined charges against Dayton Police Officer Clinton Evans, who shot Antoine Morrow Oct. 12.
Officers responded to an apartment building on Rockford Avenue after receiving reports of a disturbance where tires were slashed with a knife.
While police were investigating, officers knocked on the door of a unit when Morrow answered the door.
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.
