FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Fairborn Police said the resident involved in a fatal shooting is cooperating with the investigation and has been released without any charges.
The shooting happened April 23 at a home on Oakhill Avenue.
Fairborn police said a resident shot and killed his grandson, 20-year-old Brandon Spencer. Spencer was pronounced dead at the the scene.
Neighbors told 2 NEWS they heard four or five gunshots coming from the house around noon. Police said the grandfather then ran next door and told his neighbors to call police because he just shot his grandson.
People who live nearby called the grandfather the perfect neighbor and could not believe what they saw.
Spencer is a Fairborn High School graduate. Police said they have had prior contact with him, but not at Oakhill Avenue home.
Court documents show Spencer had three open cases. The 20-year-old was facing assault and unlawful restraint charges, violating a temporary protection order, and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. None of the cases involved his grandfather, according to officials at Fairborn Municipal Court.
Police said it would likely be several days before a decision is made on whether charges will be filed based upon results of the autopsy and evidence collected at the scene.
