Video Released in Shooting



Ashland County Sheriff’s Office releases video of Officer involved Shooting, on Aug 5, 2023, at 7:56 p.m. in the 200 block of U.S. 250 East, in Rowsburg, Ohio.

Deputies responded to a call about a male with suicidal tendencies, having a firearm.

The video shows Deputies walking around the house, and seeing a male sitting in a lawn chair. The Deputies proceed to ask him his name and what was going on. The male threw down a cell phone.

At this point the Deputies saw the firearm, and commanded him not to pick it up!

Deputies tried to taser the suspect 3 times, to no avail.

The male later identified as Larry Dunham, age 63, raised one of the pistols up and fired twice at one of the Deputies. At that point two of the Deputies fired their service weapons multiple times, striking the male.

Deputies radioed, “Shots fired!” and Jeromesville EMS was dispatched.

The Sheriff's Office called for assistance, and turned the investigation over to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Ashland County Coroner's Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol also responded. The Ashland County Coroner’s Offices transported the body to Lucas County for an autopsy.
