State probe into police fatal shooting of Dayton man to take weeks


The state investigation into the fatal shooting of a Dayton man that led to the paid leave of two Moraine police officers may last into late December.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s fact finding into what led Officers John Howard and Jerry Knight to shoot Jamarco McShann just before dawn Oct. 20 is expected to take about 10 weeks, said spokeswoman Jill Del Greco.

BCI is overseeing the investigation into the possibility of any criminal action in the case. The bureau became involved at the request of the Moraine Police Division, which is conducting an internal investigation into the shooting outside an apartment complex on Pinnacle Road.

Howard and Knight have been on paid administrative leave – standard protocol in such incidents - since the death of the 23-year-old McShann.

Police said Knight responded to the scene on a report of a suspicious vehicle and came upon McShann, who was sleeping in a parked car with a gun.

Knight called for backup, and he and Howard later confronted McShann, who police said failed to comply with orders to drop the gun.

The officers then fired 10 shots, resulting in McShann’s death, Moraine Police Chief Craig Richardson has said. Richardson said it was later determined McShann’s semi-automatic handgun had a bullet in the chamber.
