BROOKVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The older brother of 31-year-old Ashley Sides spoke with 2NEWS Tuesday night.

Jeff Sides, lives in Cookeville, Tennessee and is now planning his sister’s funeral after she was fatally shot Monday night at the Speedway on Arlington Road in Brookville.

According to him, his sister had been dating Conrad Davis for over a year. Sides told 2NEWS he hasn’t spoken with her in over a month, but did tell her not to leave town with Davis, who Sides said, “is into drugs.”

Davis was arrested Tuesday morning and is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on a possible murder charge in connection to Monday night’s officer-involved shooting.

On Davis’ Facebook page, it lists the United States Marine Corps. We checked and found he was discharged early in 2014 after less than two years of duty.

The military stated, “Indicative of the fact that the character of his service was in congruent with the Marine Corps’ expectations and standards.”

When being transferred to Montgomery County Jail, Davis was unaware that his girlfriend was killed.

“She got caught in the cross fire? Did she get shot? Is she okay?,” Davis said in handcuffs to reporters.

Jeff Sides said his sister leaves behind three children, all under the age of 10.

2 NEWS looked into Ashley Sides’ criminal history. She faced robbery charges in Hamilton County, Ohio in 2006 and a theft charge in Tennessee the same year.

It doesn’t appear that Davis has a criminal history.

Tuesday night, Brookville police Chief Doug Jerome named the officers involved as Officer Frank Graci and Officer Henry Edds, who took a bullet to the arm.

Wednesday, a call made to 911 was released. In that call, you can hear a woman telling police she saw a car go airborne while she was parked in the lot at a restaurant.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.

2 NEWS is waiting to learn from authorities as to who shot whom and what exactly led up to the shooting. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
