Officers Named in Troy Officer-Involved Shooting
TROY -- It has been confirmed that Officers Matt Mosier and Zac Mumford were the ones who opened fire late Tuesday night, killing Al Pickett.
Police tell us the 53-year-old man stabbed his estranged wife multiple times and refused to drop a gun when officers ordered him to.
Pickett's wife was treated at the hospital, although she's now recovering at home.
Woman Begs Husband Not to Kill Her in 9-1-1 Call
TROY -- Police shot and killed Al Pickett, 52, Tuesday night after they say he stabbed his estranged wife multiple times.
"Baby I'm dropping the charges, you don't have to do this," said Anita Swartz, 38.
Throughout the 911 call you can hear Schwartz' screams laced with her begging her estranged husband Al Pickett not to kill her.
"I told everyone I'm going to work my marriage out with you baby," she said.
Where Al Pickett used to live, the door is almost completely kicked in. Neighbors say his wife got a restraining order against him after she had to call 911 on him numerous times.
"It started with two loud thuds. I guess it was him kicking in the door and her screaming. Then it went silent then she started screaming again," said Jadelynn Steele neighbor.
Neighbors say their daughter called police after Pickett stabbed Swartz.
"This was pretty sad because the young daughter had to witness what happened to her mother," said neighbor Mary Lou Craig.
When they arrived around 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, Pickett was standing outside armed.
"Put the gun down, put it down then you hear one gun shot, followed by three more," said Steele.
Pickett died at the scene after police shot him nearly 10 times in the torso.
"When they shot, the stray bullet went into my granddaughter's apartment," said Craig. "It went through the window and to her couch. I had a grand-baby there that was sleeping.
Despite close calls, no one else was hurt in this incident.
Swartz had no words for our cameras, but neighbors say this is a tragic end to an apparent domestic violence story that has been going on for a while.
"As thin as our ceilings and walls are, you can hear plain as day, they're screaming at each other and stuff," said Joshua Steele.
Pickett's wife was treated and released from the hospital.
Because this is a police-involved shooting, the Ohio BCI is taking over the investigation.
