Ohio judge ruled hospital shooter incompetent 2 years ago

CINCINNATI – Court records show an Ohio judge two years ago ordered treatment in a state mental hospital for the gunman who this week injured a security officer at a psychiatric emergency room before killing himself.

Isaiah Currie was restricted temporarily in a hospital and ordered to take medication after his arrest in 2015 for assaulting a University of Cincinnati Health security officer. Wednesday’s shooting is also a UC Health, security officer, whose identity has not been released.

A of 2015, when police say Currie was a patient, but didn’t elaborate.

His current lawyer says that she knew that Currie, who was 20, had a mental health history, but he seemed to be stable and coherent when they last saw him. Recently he was free on bond for a charge of assaulting a prison officer.
