NEW CARLISLE, Ohio — A newspaper photographer was shot by a deputy Sunday night after the deputy mistook the man’s camera for a weapon, reports say.
The New Carlisle News reports its photographer, Andy Grimm, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital for surgery and is expected to recover from his wound.
Grimm had his camera and a tripod and was outside at about 10 p.m. Sunday attempting to take photos of lightning during a storm, the News reports.
And then this further into the article:
Grimm tells the News he was in full view of Shaw and that the deputy gave him no warning before firing. However, he said he knows Shaw and that he hopes the deputy will not lose his job over the incident.
