BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Associated Press confirms that one of the officers involved in the shooting at the Beavercreek Walmart is back on the job.

Beavercreek City Attorney Stephen McHugh says Sergeant David Darkow returned earlier this month.

The shooting on August 5 killed John Crawford, III. Police say he was waving a gun around the store and would not drop it on the officer’s command. The gun turned out to be a pellet gun.

The other officer involved, Officer Sean Williams, remains on administrative leave.

The police department is planning to release the 911 calls and cruiser camera video of the incident later this afternoon.

McHugh did not confirm which officer fired the shot that killed Crawford.

A special grand jury will convene September 3 to determine whether criminal charges will be filed.
