No indictment for officer involved in April officer-involved shooting

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A police officer who fatally shot a Dayton woman will not be indicted, announced Friday.

There was “no true bill” finding that the officers acted in self‐defense as well as defense of others.

Kisha Arrone was shot by Dayton Police Officer in April after she “threatened her (wife) by holding a semi‐automatic handgun to her (wife’s) head. In a struggle over the gun, it discharged.
Arrone then went to her pickup truck and fired additional rounds,” according to a press release from Mat Heck, Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney.

“Due to the serious and imminent threat to the bystanders and Arrone’s wife, three Dayton Police Department officers discharged their duty weapons at Arrone, fatally wounding her,” it read.

All three officers were placed on administrative leave during the review of the incident, which is standard protocol.

A cousin of Arrone’s spoke with 2 NEWS in April about the incident. Monique Spears wishes police would have done something other than shooting her cousin to death.

“It was calm to the point to where the police were called. They could have apprehended her peacefully. To draw guns and shoot my cousin 15 times. That’s overkill,” Spears said.

Dayton Police have scheduled a news conference on Monday at 2 p.m. to provide more detail on the incident.
