CINCINNATI (AP) — A man shot by Cincinnati police after a prosecutor says he shot and injured one of the officers has been indicted on charges including attempted murder.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Tuesday that 37-year-old Damion McRae also has been indicted on charges of felonious assault, assault and weapons counts in the March 12 shooting. Deters says the officers won't face charges.
The prosecutor says the officers were responding to a report of domestic violence at an apartment complex when McRae shot Officer Kenneth Grubbs in the abdomen with a 9 mm rifle. Deters says both officers returned fire, and McRae was shot four or five times.
McRae and Grubbs have been released from the hospital. McRae was jailed.
A message seeking comment was left Tuesday for McRae's attorney.
