UPDATE @ 10:43 a.m. (Feb. 6)
Centerville detectives are preparing to take evidence from Thursday’s police-involved shooting to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s office, the department said Monday.
Officer John Davis, the department’s spokesman, said the injured 15-year-old is not currently in jail due to his injuries, but did not have an immediate update on his condition. The male was hospitalized following the incident.
“We’ve reached out to the family to make sure the family and the young man are taken care of as best we can,” Davis said. “It’s a tragic incident. It’s not something that anyone, police officer or any other person, wants to be involved with.”
Davis said the two officers involved in the incident, who were not injured, are “doing well.”
UPDATE @ 4:20 p.m. (Feb. 3)
We continue to seek new information into Thursday’s shooting of a 15-year-old male wielding a gun.
The two officers involved are Sgt. James Shanesy, who’s been with the department since 1984, and Officer Scott Thomas whom joined the force in 1991.
This news organization is awaiting several records requests, including the personnel files of the two officers on paid administrative leave and records regarding past interactions between the wounded individual and police.
Police Chief Bruce Robertson has indicated his belief the officers responded appropriately to the situation. The two officers are long-time veterans of the department, with nearly 60 years combined experience in Centerville.
