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.
