MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) — The Moraine Police Chief had very little to say about an officer-involved shooting in Moraine Friday.

The Moraine Chief of Police Craig Richardson said the department has an active investigation into the shooting underway.

Officers released an update about the case Friday. You can watch the full update here:

Richardson said in a Friday morning news conference officers were called to Pinnacle Road around 5:15 am on a report of a suspicious vehicle.

When police arrived they found a man inside the vehicle Richardson says the man pointed a handgun at the officers. The officers fired at the suspect.

23-year-old Jamarco McShann was pronounced dead at the scene and the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office was contacted.

Richardson said more information would be released when it is available and a more in-depth news conference would be held but not until Saturday at the earliest.

McShann served a two year prison sentence in 2014 for weapons and felonious robbery charges.

Residents at the apartment complex are skeptical of the police’s version of the shooting.

One who chose to remain anonymous said, “The police did something wrong here today. They have a license to kill.”

2 NEWS has requested the 911 calls and is waiting to hear back.
