Police Shooting

Officer cleared of shooting in Cincinnati suburb

An investigation has found that two police officers in the southwest Ohio town of Blue Ash did nothing wrong when they shot and killed a 42-year-old man last April.

Hamilton County prosecutors say Sergeant Richard Riley and officer Pete Ballauer didn't break any laws when they shot Anthony Myers. The officers were involved in a chase that began in the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville. Police say the two began shooting at Myers after his SUV crashed through a guardrail, rammed three cruisers and tried to run over another officer. The decision by prosecutors was based on a report by Sharonville police.

An internal investigation by Blue Ash police also found the officers followed department policies and procedures.
