Columbus Police Board Clears Officer In 2017 Shooting

The Columbus police firearms review board has clared an officer of wrongdoing for firing at a suspect in a March 2017 stabbing that injured the suspect's roommate. 

The board says Frank Miller acted within division policy when he shot and wounded 22-year-old Ezra Cason at a Neil Avenue home. Cason is charged with stabbing and wounding 19-year-old Melanie Chica. Police say Cason threatened a visitor and stabbed the women when the visitor fled. It is not clear if Cason was armed when Miller opened fire. Miller shot and killed an alleged armed  man at a north side apartment complex in 2010. An internal probe of that case also found Miller acted within division policy.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
