STOW, Ohio — An investigation continues following the fatal shooting of a man after he was transported by a police officer to an Ohio homeless shelter.

Police records show the man had refused to get out of the officer’s cruiser when they got to the shelter in Akron in northeastern Ohio.

A radio log released by the Stow Police Department on Monday indicates a Stow officer asked that Akron police be called after the officer arrived at the rear door of the shelter late Sunday. The log says two shots were fired and the officer with the man was slightly hurt and lost his glasses.

The log does not state who fired the shots.

Police say the man died at an Akron hospital.
