It began with a traffic stop on Ohio 795 by a township police officer. As police asked the driver,
Geiger, to step out of the vehicle, one of the passengers locked the doors and fled in the vehicle.
During that time, Scarrow bailed from the vehicle and began to flee on foot.
The driver, 25-year-old Trent Harper, crashed the vehicle and then opened fire on officers. He was
fatally shot.
