Crew Reconstructs Shooting Inside Ohio Wal-Mart
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.
