Officer involved in Wal-Mart shooting back on job

Written by 

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) - A city official says one of two police officers involved in the fatal shooting of a man at a suburban Dayton Wal-Mart store is back on the job.

Beavercreek city attorney Stephen McHugh tells the Dayton Daily News that Sgt. David Darkow has returned to work following the shooting earlier this month. He says the other officer remains on administrative leave.

Neither McHugh nor the Ohio Attorney General's Office has said which officer fired the shot that killed 21-year-old John Crawford in the Beavercreek store Aug. 5 after police said Crawford twice ignored commands to put down an air rifle he was holding.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said this week that a special county grand jury will convene Sept. 3 to determine whether criminal charges should be filed.
