Police in Ohio fatally shot a guy who, according to his relatives, was clearing up the residence of his deceased grandmother.

Joe Frasure was shot on Monday in Wyoming town and passed away on Tuesday in the hospital.

Police have stated that they thought the 28-year-old was a suspect in a crime and that he drove a vehicle at them.

His family, however, has challenged the narrative given by the authorities and demanded that the bodycam video of the event be made public.

Following complaints of a suspected burglary, police said they arrived at a house on Durrell Avenue soon after midnight on Monday.

At the back of the property, they discovered two guys who said that Frasure tried to escape in a minivan after failing to comply with police demands. Frasure may have entered the van after the cops arrived or may have been inside when they first arrived.

Wyoming Police Chief Brooke Brady stated, "The minivan reversed at a high rate of speed before hitting a tree, at which time the vehicle proceeded fast toward our officers."

She continued by saying that Frasure was struck when the cops fired four bullets at the vehicle. The vehicle then struck the structure.

According to Ms. Brady, the cops then removed Frasure from the vehicle and gave him life-saving help before transporting him to the hospital.

According to WLWT news, the county coroner determined that Frasure died as a result of a shooting involving police.

The father of Frasure has been recognized as the second man in the back of the residence. Wyoming police reportedly told WCPO 9 News that he was no longer being "sought by police," but they withheld any other information.

On Wednesday, members of Frasure's family demonstrated in front of the Wyoming police station to demand justice.

Contrary to what the police have reported, his brother has claimed that Frasure was shot in the back of the head, according to WCPO.

He said, "I want to know why they killed my brother." My brother was a son, a brother, a father, and a member of the family. "A kind companion."
