HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) — Huber Heights police have released the dash cam video from an officer-involved shooting earlier in the week.

In the video, officers can be seen walking toward the 4900 block of Leeper Drive on Monday as they approach Joshua Kiser, 20. Kiser was wanted for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

As officers approached Kiser, they said he got into a stolen black Nissan and drove toward one of them.

Shots were fired by Officer Aaron Harlow, a 15-year-veteran with the department. He was uninjured and has been placed on administrative leave.

The stolen vehicle was found late Monday night at motel in Butler Township. However, Kiser was nowhere to be found.

The Huber Heights Police Department also issued a statement on their Facebook page with a warning for anyone who might be assisting Kiser.

“We are aware that Mr. Kiser has a network of acquaintances, many of whom we have already visited.
