Hamilton Police have identified the aggravated robbery suspect from the Walgreen’s officer-involved shooting early this morning as Kelley Brandon Forte, 34, of Cincinnati.
Police say they will release the name of the officers involved on Tuesday.
The case is expected to be presented to a Butler County grand jury for review by the end of the week, according to police and the prosecutor’s office.
UPDATE, 12:40 p.m.:
The fatal officer-involved shooting this morning at Walgreens on High Street will be presented to a Butler County grand jury for review, according to county Prosecutor Michael Gmoser.
It has been a policy since Gmoser took office that all officer-involved shootings be reviewed by a grand jury.
Gmoser told this news outlet that this morning’s fatal shooting of a man allegedly robbing the store and holding a pharmacist at knife point will be no different.
“That is protocol in this county, no matter how obvious the evidence should be,” Gmoser told this news outlet, adding there will be no question why one case is presented to a grand jury and another is not.
Police Chief Craig Bucheit said an investigation continues into the shooting.
“We are in the process of following up on interviewing the witnesses, collecting physical evidence and working through this investigation,” he said. “I can assure you that this will be a full, fair and impartial and transparent investigation.”
UPDATE, 11:30 a.m.:
More information about the two officers involved in the fatal shooting:
The first officer, who fired the fatal shots is a nine-year veteran of the Hamilton Police Department and is 33 years old, according to Bucheit.
The second officer is a one-year veteran of the police department and is 23 years old, according to Bucheit.
“Both officers have been placed on administrative leave as per our departmental policies,” he said.
UPDATE, 10:45 a.m.:
The 911 calls from this morning’s fatal officer-involved shooting indicates the suspect was seen jumping over the counter.
This news outlet received audio of two 911 calls that were made from the shooting scene.
In one call, a man told a dispatcher, “Dude hopped the counter.”
He said, “I seen him hop the counter… he is back there with one of the workers. I don’t know if he has got a gun, but he is back there with her.”
When the dispatcher asked if the man was threatening the employee, the caller said, “It looks a little suspect. I am not sure what is going on.”
A woman who is a store employee told dispatchers in a 911 call that “I had a customer just inform us that someone jumped our pharmacy counter.”
The employee said she could not pull up the area on the store’s surveillance cameras. She told the dispatcher that when she went back to check the pharmacist said she was okay, but she could not see her.
The Hamilton Police report of the incident at 1090 High Street says the suspect entered Walgreens, jumped the counter in the pharmacy and used a knife to force the victim to retrieve cash from the cash register.
UPDATE, 10:15 a.m.:
The scene of the fatal officer-involved shooting remains closed this morning.
Several Hamilton Police Department vehicles remain at the Walgreens, at 1090 High Street, where a robbery suspect was shot early this morning by police.
UPDATE, 9:10 a.m.:
Police initially responded to a 911 call about a customer going over the counter, according to Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit.
Bucheit says suspect was holding a pharmacist hostage with a knife to her throat. The suspect did not comply with police demands and was killed, according to Bucheit.
Two officers who responded to the scene are on leave, per department policy, he said.
The suspect has not been identified. At this time, police only know he is a black male in his 20s, according to Bucheit.
The officer who filed the fatal shot is a 9-year veteran of the department, according to Bucheit.

The short version is that grandma (pictured below; sorry 'bout the size) was raising sand with her grandsons over a $1,000 water bill, the lads laughed it off and in fact one of them continued with his shower. A rifle was presented, threats made, and net result was gran-mom being run in a felonious assault charge. She was released on a personal bond equivalent to 1.5 water bills.


Cops: Woman points rifle at grandson over water bill
James David Dickson , The Detroit News 9:26 a.m. EST December 14, 2016

A 66-year-old Ferndale grandmother is accused of pointing a rifle at her 15-year-old grandson in a dispute about the family water bill, police said.

The incident took place Sunday about 4 p.m. on the 1500 block of Leroy — south of Nine Mile, west of Livernois — when police received a 911 call from a teenager who said his grandmother had just pulled a gun on him.

Police responded and asked the woman, Jaclynn Doreatha Wedlow, if she had any guns in the house or if she’d pointed a gun at anyone. She said no, she couldn’t have, because she was just carrying a microwave.

At issue, police say, is a $1,000 water bill the woman allegedly blamed on her grandsons, who are 15 and 22. Police say the woman was apparently irate that her grandsons helped run up the bill but haven’t assisted in paying it.

While this discussion was happening, said Sgt. Baron Brown of the Ferndale Police Department, the 22-year-old was in the shower. Wedlow tried to get him out, but he didn’t leave.

Police say they believe that at this point Wedlow pulled out a .22-caliber rifle and told the 15-year-old to get his brother out of the shower, and that if the two didn’t leave, they’d get their "heads blown off."

When the 22-year-old emerged from the shower, he and his brother went upstairs and called police.

Officers asked Wedlow several times if there were guns in the home, and were told no, Brown said. They asked if they could look in the woman’s bedroom, and were told yes.

In the bedroom they found the microwave Wedlow had mentioned. But near it, “wrapped in a blanket or a tarp,” they found “what appeared to be a rifle,” Brown said, and arrested the woman. She was arraigned at Ferndale’s 43rd District Court on charges of felonious assault and domestic violence, given a $1,500 personal bond — which would only need to be paid if she missed a future court date — and ordered to stay away from the home and avoid contact with the 15-year-old.

Well, this IS Ferndale, their water rates are quite high. Gotta pay for other things like crosswalks and signage every fucking block. I've never seen such absurdity.
