Investigative documents related to fatal officer-involved shooting cases

The office of Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is committed to post-investigation transparency in all officer-involved critical incidents (OICI). This means public access to investigatory information after the investigating agency has secured the physical evidence and interviewed witnesses – a process that forms the basis for any legal action stemming from the incident – and a prosecutor or grand jury has ruled on the case.

Below are documents and other information for OICI cases that have been completed. Note that any document redactions or video modifications were made to meet the requirements of Ohio’s Sunshine Laws.

Case file regarding the officer-involved shooting involving Arthur Keith and law enforcement officers from the Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority. The investigation was conducted by the Cleveland Police Department and was presented by an Ohio Attorney General’s Office special prosecutor to a Cuyahoga County grand jury on July 6, 2021. The grand jury issued a no-bill indictment in the case, declining to indict the law enforcement officers involved in the case.
