HAMILTON, Ohio - Hamilton police released more details Monday in the weekend fatal shooting of a man suspected of trying to rob Mazagan Urban Ware.

Hamilton Police Capt. Craig Bucheit reports gun fire was exchanged between the store owner and 26-year-old Jeremy Scott Irvin of Fairfield after Irvine entered the store brandishing a handgun while approaching the store's cash register.

The store owner's wife was at the register when Irvin entered, according to Bucheit. The entire incident was also recorded by a security camera.

Hamilton police responded to a call at 8:34 p.m. Saturday from the store owner at 201 Main Street. The owner told police on the phone he shot a man attempting to rob him.

Officers said Irvin was found lying outside the store with an apparent gunshot wound when they arrived.

Irvin was taken to Fort Hamilton Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Bucheit said evidence would be turned over to a grand jury who would determine whether or not charges would be filed in relation to the incident next week.
