UPDATE: Off-duty officer shoots 17-year-old armed robbery suspect

Shooting reported after Shell station robbed at gunpoint in Miamisburg (WKEF/WRGT)

UPDATE: Miamisburg Police said a 17 year old armed robbery suspect is doing fine after he was shot by an off-duty officer Tuesday afternoon.

They said no other details will be released for the time being as they sort through the information, but the teen is still in custody.


UPDATE: The manager for the Shell gas station at the intersection of Byers Road and State Route 725 said a man robbed the store before taking off in a stolen car.

Miami Township Sgt. Pail Nienhaus said it appears that car may have stopped working just about in the intersection of 725 and I-75, at which point the male got out with a handgun and tried to force other people out of their vehicles. An off-duty Miami Township police officer saw what was doing on and got out of the vehicle with his off-duty weapon.

The officer then ordered for the suspect to drop the gun, but when he didn't comply with orders, the officer opened fire and hit the suspect at least once. The suspect was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries to be treated for an injury to his arm. Officials are also investigating to see if the suspect did return fire to the police officer, and that officer was transported to the hospital which is "not usual," according to Sgt. Neinhaus.

Miamisburg Police are handling this investigation, and are asking anyone who was near the intersection at the time to contact them.
