A Dayton man killed by Moraine police last week died from several gunshot wounds, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.
Police said two officers fired 10 shots after telling Jamarco McShann, 23, to drop his gun when they confronted him in his car after a report of a suspicious vehicle at Valleyview Apartments on Pinnacle Road early Friday morning.
McShann died from “multiple” gunshot wounds, the coroner’s office said Thursday. The office said it did not have information on how many times McShann was shot or the locations of the wounds.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is overseeing the criminal probe into the case at the request of the Moraine Police Division.
The two officers who fired shots – Jerry Knight and John Howard – are on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol in officer-involved shootings, Moraine Police Chief Craig Richardson said.
Richardson said this is the first officer-involved shooting in the history of the city.
