No Charges Filed Against Clerk in Pleasant Ridge Shooting
CINCINNATI -- According to our sister station in Cincinnati, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters and interim Police Chief Paul Humphries announced Tuesday that charges would not be filed against the store clerk involved in the shooting death of Omar Magdy Abouelalla.
Abouelalla, 22, was fatally shot in the LM&N Unlimited Supermarket in Pleasant Ridge earlier this month when he entered the store wearing a motorcycle helmet.
Authorities outlined the circumstances surrounding Abouelalla's death and released surveillance video of the incident.
Deters revealed the store clerk involved in the shooting had been robbed at gunpoint several times and the store had been burglarized the week before the shooting by someone wearing a mask.
Abouelalla died inside store at 5640 Montgomery Road on Aug. 4. Abouelalla, who police said was unarmed, entered the store where he used to deliver cigarettes in the past. Police said Abouelalla entered the employee-only area, although the store clerk and Abouelalla were acquainted.
The clerk and Abouelalla were the only two people in the store at the time of the shooting. The Hamilton County coroner released a preliminary report indicating Abouelalla died as a result of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Hamilton County court records show Abouelalla has no criminal record other than a 2010 speeding ticket on Interstate 71.
Deters stated the prosecutor's office determined the clerk was not at fault in creating the situation, that he did not violate his duty to retreat, and that there was reasonable fear for serious bodily harm in the situation.
In a prepared statement earlier this month, Abouelalla's family said "We are devastated by the recent loss of our beloved Omar, whose life was tragically and suddenly cut short on August 4th. Omar was a vibrant, caring and joyful young man who always jumped at the opportunity to help others. He was a dutiful son, a loving brother and a loyal friend ... We hope that the Cincinnati Police Department will thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances leading to Omar's death and we trust that the Hamilton County Prosecutor will file the appropriate charges against the perpetrator and bring us justice."
