DAYTON

A police officer who authorities say fatally shot an armed man during a traffic stop in southwest Ohio won’t face criminal charges.

Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said in a statement Wednesday that a grand jury declined to indict the officer who shot 33-year-old Jason Hoops on August 27, 2017 in the Dayton suburb of Kettering.

Authorities said Officer Jonathon McCoy was conducting a traffic stop when he saw Hoops had a firearm. Dashcam video released later showed McCoy warning Hoops not to reach for a gun, before McCoy fired.
