A Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy shot Andy Grimm, a news photographer from Ohio as he was unloading the tripod from vehicle capture pictures of the traffic stop on the Main Street nearby the Studebaker’s Restaurant around at 10 pm on Monday.
Sources say, as Grimm was on setting up the tripod for the snaps, the Clark County deputy opened a fire on Grimm without any prior warnings. He had been taken to the nearest local hospital carrying the doctors’ statement as ‘expected to recover’. It is reported that Grimm had left his workplace at approximately 10 pm for taking the lightening’s snaps.
Grimm told the reports that, “I was going out to take pictures and I saw the traffic stop and I thought, ‘Hey, cool. I’ll get some pictures over here.’ I turned around toward the cars and then ‘pop, pop’.”
He added in saying about the deputy that, “I was just doing my job and I know Jake. I like Jake. I don’t want him to lose his job over this.”
While Andy Grimm’s father and a publisher from the New Carlisle News, Dale Grimm stated this shooting as a misunderstanding and told he had talked to Andy and he is quit sore with good spirit. He said that, “This is a small town. Everybody knows everybody. It was just a terrible misunderstanding.”
The related investigation of the incidence is being carried out by the BCI division of Attorney General. The reporters added that the Andy is the well-known personality in the tow for his photography love. So, people are praying for him to recover soon.
