HUDSON, Ohio (AP) — Prosecutors have received the investigative files in the police shooting of an unarmed United Arab Emirates citizen who fled after an Ohio car crash.
Cleveland.com (http://bit.ly/2rkx6j4 ) reports the Ohio Bureau of Investigation said Friday that prosecutors with the state Attorney General’s Office could ask for a follow-up investigation into 26-year-old Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri’s death or present findings to a grand jury.
The bureau says it has no timetable.
Authorities say a Hudson police officer repeatedly shot the Case Western Reserve University law student Dec. 4 during a struggle after Alameri flipped his car along the Ohio Turnpike and ran. Investigators haven’t said why he fled.
