Grand jury: No charges in Ohioan's shooting death

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (AP) — A grand jury has concluded a law enforcement officer appropriately used force in shooting and killing a man who fired at authorities in a standoff at his western Ohio home.

The Dayton Daily News ( ) reports a grand jury reviewed evidence Monday and declined to indict anyone in the death of 42-year-old Paul Schenck of Yellow Springs.

Authorities were called to Schenck's home, roughly 15 miles east of Dayton, over a domestic dispute July 30.

Investigators say Schenck fired at least 191 shots out of his home. Some hit neighboring houses and law enforcement vehicles.

The state attorney general reported that a SWAT team member shot and killed Schenck. The report says relatives said Schenck had consumed alcohol before the standoff and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as a teenager.
