Investigators are shedding more light into a shooting that
left a teenage gunman dead and a Hamilton Police officer wounded.
They paint a
dark picture of a troubled teen who enjoyed violent video games and may have
had a death wish.
Hamilton Police Chief Scott Scrimizzi says the teenager, Brandon
Keeler, suffered from mental health issues and was carrying more than 200
rounds of ammunition when he began shooting indiscriminately.
Keeler, 18, was shot and killed by Officer Chad Stafford after
police were called to the scene.
Stafford fired his service weapon after being shot in the
head by Keeler.
The case was referred to a Butler County grand jury which
found no criminal responsibility by Stafford.
Butler County Prosecutor, Mike Gmoser, says Keeler may have
been under the influence of drugs at the time and that the teen was fascinated
by the video game "Grand Theft Auto."
