Howard and Knight were placed on paid administrative leave Oct. 20 after an early morning shooting of 23-year-old Jamarco McShann outside an apartment complex on Pinnacle Road while they were investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle.

Police said they shot McShann – the city’s first police-involved fatal shooting — after he pointed a loaded semi-automatic pistol at two officers and failed to heed their warnings. McShann died from “multiple” gunshot wounds, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Richardson said the officers fired several shots. Representatives for McShann’s family called the killing unjustified and threatened legal action.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation has taken over the case at the request of the Moraine Police Division.

Howard is a 19-year veteran of the division, and Knight has worked there since early 2016, according to the city.
