MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) — Police released bodycam footage from the officer-involved shooting that happened on May 4.

According to Moraine police, bodycam footage was released from the officer-involved shooting that occurred on I-75 north.

On May 4 the Moraine Police Department was investigating a two-vehicle crash on I-75 north when one of the men from an involved car pointed a gun at the officers.

The two officers involved were identified as Sgt. Kenneth Lloyd and Officer Jerome Klemmensen. Both were placed on paid administrative leave following the incident.

Police attempted to get the man to drop the weapon and reportedly gave him 41 commands to drop the gun. At one point during the bodycam footage, an officer is heard saying “We don’t want to hurt you, we wanna get you some help.”

An Ohio State highway Patrol trooper attempted to use less-lethal options to de-escalate the situation, however, the suspect did not comply. Two officers eventually used their service weapons to fire nine shots at the man, injuring him severely.

Officer Klemmensen can be heard saying “He started pointing it towards me Jay, I did what I had to.”

The suspect was brought to the hospital by paramedics but he later died of his injuries.

The man has since been identified as 27-year-old Elijah Isham who had a prior arrest in April 2022 for assault and resisting arrest.

Police reported Isham’s gun was not loaded, however, officers shot him as they saw him cock his weapon and point it at them.

In the crash itself, at least one person was trapped in their car after the collision leaving one car on its top in the right-hand lane and another in a nearby ditch. The highway was shut down during the incident in an effort to keep drivers safe.

Moraine police said outside agencies are actively investigating this incident.
