When they arrived, Deputy Barnes approached the residence and was immediately confronted by Laghaoui who fired at least seven shots from an AK-47 style assault rifle at Deputy Barnes, striking her in the abdominal region, and ran from the area.

Laghaoui also fired two shots at a neighbor who attempted to follow him from the scene. The neighbor was not injured.

Sergeant Langdon went to the entrance of The Orchards of Landen Apartments and met Deputy Barnes. She was moved to Kroger on U.S. Route 22 where she was taken to The University of Cincinnati Hospital.

Deputy Edward Pangallo found Laghaoui’s father, Abdessadek Laghaoui, who suffered a major gunshot wound to his hand when Laghaoui shot through the door of his father’s apartment when he could not get inside.

Numerous police agencies responded to the area to assist with the search for Laghaoui. All area businesses and locations were placed on lock down due to the active shooter situation.
