CANTON, Ohio – Police say an officer responding to a 911 call in Ohio shot and killed a man holding an 18-year-old woman by the neck.
Canton’s police chief says the man refused to let go, and moved like he was going to the pain of the woman before an officer shot him in the head, early Wednesday.
The police identified the man as 24-year-old Hayden Stutz. The police Bruce Lawver says Stutz had said several times that he has a gun and he was not happy with what happened.
The Repository reports no weapon found.
Court records say Stutz was released from prison Monday and is due in court Wednesday on a disorderly conduct charge.
The police in North Canton say Stutz was Monday arrested in a park where he was challenging people to fight.
