Ohio Teen Shot and Killed in Courthouse Clash

Ohio Teen Shot and Killed in Courthouse Clash

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says teenager Joseph Haynes was hit once in the abdomen during the afternoon hearing in a domestic relations courtroom in Columbus.

A 16-year-old boy was fatally shot Wednesday in an OH courtroom after a deputy and some spectators were involved in a scuffle, a sheriff's department official said.

Minerd said that during the hearing there was an altercation in the courtroom involving a deputy, Haynes, and family members. He died about 30 minutes later at a nearby downtown hospital.

An Ohio sheriff's deputy fatally shot a 16-year-old boy at a court appearance Wednesday during an altercation involving the teen and family members, officials said.

The deputy also was injured and was being treated at a hospital but wasn't shot, Minerd added.

"On behalf of Sheriff [Dallas] Baldwin and our office, we want to extend out condolences to the Haynes family and wish the officer who was involved a speedy recovery", Minerd said. Haynes was in court on for a hearing regarding a menacing with a firearm charge. Chief Rick Minerd of the investigative sub-division spoke at a recent press conference.

The state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation is involved the investigation.

Franklin County Commissioner John O'Grady told the Columbus Dispatch that public safety is always an issue and commissioners would "certainly be willing" to discuss added juvenile court security with court personnel.
