New video released on Thursday from a cruiser's dash camera showed the shooting death of a man who led law enforcement officials from three agencies on a chase.
Video from the Union County Sheriff's Office shows deputies following Rickie Diamond Jr. during a 25-minute pursuit on Tuesday night, 10TV's Kevin Landers reported.
Deputies, as well as Marysville Police officers and Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers, joined in the pursuit of Diamond, who was wanted for questioning in connection with a domestic dispute.
Diamond had been involved in a fight with his father at a home in the northern part of the county, Landers reported.
Deputies tried to use stop sticks to stop Diamond's pickup, and one point he blew out a back tire. That is when a deputy closed in, ramming the pickup, Landers reported.
Diamond was shot by deputies after the pursuit ended in a residential area along Darby Drive.
Video from inside a Marysville Police cruiser showed Diamond exiting his pickup with a shotgun.
Deputies said Diamond opened fire on them. They returned fire, hitting Diamond four times and killing him, a coroner said.
The officers involved the shooting were all placed on paid administrative leave during the shooting investigation, which is standard procedure.
