Richmond Police: Centerville man shot after urging officers to kill him; ISP conducting investigation
A Centerville man has been transported to a Dayton, Ohio, hospital after Richmond police say they were forced to shoot him Sunday morning. Richmond Police Chief Mike Britt has asked Indiana State Police’s Pendleton District to investigate a police action shooting involving officers from Richmond Police Department. The incident occurred shortly before 11 a.m., when Wayne County Dispatch put out a call for a reckless driving vehicle on the west side of Richmond. An early investigation shows that an officer was on the phone while sitting in his car in the Richmond Municipal Building parking lot when the reckless driving vehicle pulled into the lot and close to the officer’s vehicle, according to a news release from Indiana State Police. A man inside the car began yelling at the officer, “Kill me, shoot me,’” the release said.
