POMEROY — An investigation by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) into last month’s fatal shooting in Syracuse is still under way.
Eve Mueller of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office confirmed on Wednesday that “this is still an active and open investigation.”
The shooting took place on Friday, January 13, at the residence of Robert W. Crow on Glenn Street. Crow was fatally shot by a Meigs County Sheriff’s Deputy, who’s name has not been released.
On Friday, Meigs County Sheriff Robert Beegle said the deputy involved had returned to desk duty while the investigation is pending.
Beegle added that the BCI investigation was still open, with toxicology results pending. An autopsy was conducted in Montgomery County following the shooting on the order of Meigs County Coroner Dr. Douglas Hunter.
As originally reported, the deputy was on scene in response to a call and was not injured in the incident.
The Daily Sentinel will provide an update to this story once the investigation is complete.
