Beavercreek police say the state will investigate Tuesday night’s shooting of a man brandishing a gun inside a Wal-Mart store. Police say they shot 22-year-old John Crawford, of Fairfield, after he failed to comply with verbal orders. He died later at Miami Valley Hospital.
Chief of Police Dennis Evers says he thinks Beavercreek police reacted appropriately.
"The quick response of officers was instrumental in containing the situation and minimizing the risk to customers," he said.
