WARREN

A city police officer shot and killed a man early this morning.

Chief Eric Merkel said the officer was responding to a one car accident about 1:50 a.m. at Palmyra and Risher roads Southwest when another car with two people inside came up, and shots were fired.

Merkel would not name the officer involved and also would not confirm the identity of the man who was shot.

Merkel said the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the investigation. The department’s Internal Affairs division is also conducting an investigation to make sure all the department’s procedures for using deadly force were followed.

The officer is on administrative leave, which is standard procedure in a shooting investigation.
