Huber Heights Police: Officer Forced to Shoot Man with Weapon
UPDATE: HUBER HEIGHTS--Police said Shannon Spencer, 39, came out of his Paletz Court home with a loaded shot gun and was pointing it in all directions and threatening suicide by cop
"He had indicated a couple of times he was going to be shot by police, and when he came out of the house he had a weapon in his hand." Huber Heights Police Chief Rob Schommer said.
Huber Heights police ordered Spencer several times to drop his weapon, but he refused to listen to officers demands.
A 10 year veteran of the Huber Heights police department shot Spencer one time and he died on scene.
"It's not easy to take someone's life, but unfortunately a suicidal person puts that officer in that position." Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer said.
Sheriff Plummer said in scenarios of suicide by cop, law enforcement officers are trained to use deadly force and to take out the threat to protect themselves and to protect the public.
"If the officer just shoots him in the leg, chances are he's going to return fire and possibly kill the officer, so the officer is trained to eliminate the threat immediately." Plummer added.
Police said Spencer's wife and children were able to safely make it to a neighbors home where she called for help.
HUBER HEIGHTS -- A Huber Heights police officer is on paid administrative leave, after reportedly shooting a man who was brandishing a weapon. Huber Heights officials are calling it a case of suicide by cop.
Officers were called to Paletz Court around 10 p.m. on a domestic issue after a man told his family he wanted to die. The woman and children got out of the house, and when police arrived they were able to communicate with the man through an open window.
Police also called in a regional tactical unit from Beavercreek to help with the situation. Officers say the man told them he wanted to die and was going to commit suicide by cop. The man eventually came out of the house with a weapon. Officers told him several times to put the weapon down. The man never complied.
One Huber Heights officer reportedly fired at the man, hitting and killing him.
Huber Heights detectives are now investigating.
