The fatal officer-involved shooting this morning at Walgreens on High Street will be presented to a Butler County grand jury for review, according to county Prosecutor Michael Gmoser.

It has been a policy since Gmoser took office that all officer-involved shootings be reviewed by a grand jury.

Gmoser told this news outlet that this morning’s fatal shooting of a man allegedly robbing the store and holding a pharmacist at knife point will be no different.

“That is protocol in this county, no matter how obvious the evidence should be,” Gmoser told this news outlet, adding there will be no question why one case is presented to a grand jury and another is not.

Police Chief Craig Bucheit said an investigation continues into the shooting.
