An investigation over the death of Yellow Springs resident Paul E. Schenck is over. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine gave the report Tuesday morning. The report sheds light on the six hour standoff with police this summer that ended in Schenck's death, but leaves some questions unanswered.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation collected evidence over a three month period. BCI concluded that the 42-year-old Schenck was killed by a Greene County Sheriff's Deputy during the standoff and not by his own hand.
A new telephone emergency alert system was used by the village of Yellow Springs during a deadly standoff with police on Tuesday night. WYSO’s Emily McCord is asking some questions about how the system was deployed.
The Yellow Springs Police held a press conference Wednesday, detailing the events of the stand-off that left one man dead and another injured. The deceased has been identified as Paul E. Schenk, 42, of 280 N. High Street. His son, Max Schenck, 19, was injured. While still under investigation, the standoff resulted from a domestic dispute.
