No Charges Filed Against Wyoming Officers in Fatal Shooting of Man: Family Demands Answers

On Tuesday, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced that no charges would be filed against the Wyoming, Ohio police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Joe Frasure Jr. in January.

The shooting occurred after officers responded to a call of a man with a gun. Frasure was shot multiple times after police say he refused to drop the gun and pointed it at officers.

The announcement comes after the family of Frasure held a protest to demand to see the body camera footage of the shooting. The family has requested the footage be released to the public for review.

The family has also requested an independent investigation into the shooting.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement that the officers acted lawfully when they used deadly force, and that they had no other choice due to the circumstances.

The statement also said that the officers had reasonable suspicion that Frasure was a threat and that they believed he was armed.

Frasure was in the process of cleaning out his grandmother’s home at the time of the shooting. His family says he was unarmed and had no intention of harming anyone.

The family has called for the officers involved in the shooting to be held accountable for their actions.

The incident is still under investigation by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
