“This is a very traumatic incident for the officers,” Maynard said. “We brought in some teams to try to address that and make sure they’re taken care of … it’s a sad day, and we just want to make sure we take care of our officers and anyone else for that matter that this directly impacts."
Maynard released the information in a 10:30 a.m. news conference. Watch the full press conference in the player below:
"Tragic, sad," said Charlotte Gilpin, who has lived in the neighborhood for the past five years. Gilpin said she never imagined something this happening there.
"Beautiful community, it's a nice neighborhood,” Gilpin said. “Just shocked, shocking ... Never seen anything like this."

Gilpin said there's plenty of services available in the area for people who need them.
“If you have a family friend, neighbor, or even stranger that you feel like needs help, there's all kinds of contacts in Butler County," Gilpin said.
Both Carnes and Meyer have been placed on administrative leave. Carnes’ personnel file refers to him as an asset to the department with no disciplinary record.
Carnes was wearing a body camera, and Maynard said that video will be released after the investigation is complete. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling that.
