Ohio Man Dies After Being Shot By Police While Cleaning Home

A 28-year-old man from Ohio died on Tuesday, a day after being shot by police who thought he was a burglary suspect while, according to his family, cleaning out his late grandmother’s house. An investigation is currently ongoing.

In Wyoming, a community of 9,000 people 12 miles north of Cincinnati’s central business district, Joe Frasure was the target of gunfire early Monday. The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office reports that he was hospitalized and passed away on Tuesday.

According to Wyoming police, officers were called just one morning to an apartment complex in the 300 block of Durrell Avenue after receiving a report that two to three people were attempting to break into a house.

The 911 caller said the apartment should have been vacant.

According to a video statement from Police Chief Brooke Brady, responding officers found Frasure and his father on the back driveway after hearing activity at the back of the building.

She claimed that Frasure was in a minivan and defied orders to get out.

“The minivan reversed quickly, hit a tree, and then drove quickly toward our cops,” she claimed. “As the minivan sped up at them, the officers fired four rounds at it.”

Frasure was hit in the gunfire, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s office.

The vehicle struck the structure after the shot.

“Our cops forced their way into the minivan, which was smoking, and dragged Mr. Frasure out while the engine was still running. After that, they gave him life-saving treatment and took him to University Hospital, she claimed.

It is unknown what caused his death or how.

Brady stated that she has watched the police bodycam footage of the event and that it has been given to the investigating sheriff’s office and Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.

“This is a tragedy for all involved,” Brady said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family now.”

Police did not reply to requests for further details. The prosecutor’s office said the matter is still under investigation.

Frasure’s family has disputed the police account, saying he was not a burglary suspect. Instead, they say he and his father had been clearing out an apartment his grandmother lived in before she recently died, NBC affiliate WLWT of Cincinnati reported.

His sister, Shonda Coleman, told the station: “I didn’t hear that. I didn’t hear any commands. All I heard was pop, pop, pop, pop. Like, it was, like, ten rounds.

I want to view the bodycam. She proclaimed, “I like the information of every single police officer that was present.

In addition to the bodycam footage of the police officers, prosecutors are anticipated to provide more details at a news conference on Friday.
