Ohio authorities have completed additional investigation at a Dayton-area Wal-Mart store where police fatally shot a man holding an air rifle.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office confirms that state investigators returned to the Beavercreek store Wednesday to gather additional information and reconstruct the shooting of 22-year-old John Crawford III.

The Dayton Daily News reports that gunshots could be heard from inside the store as investigators worked from about 2 a.m. until 5 a.m.

Crawford was killed by police Aug. 5. A 911 caller told police that Crawford was waving a weapon inside the store.

A special prosecutor will convene a grand jury on Sept. 22 to hear evidence in the case and determine if charges are warranted. Crawford’s supporters claim the shooting was not justified.

    So interesting that this occurred in an open carry state. Like I have always contended, open carry is a white persons privilege only…
