FAIRFIELD — The man who was shot and killed and the three officers involved have been identified from Friday’s officer-involved shooting outside of a Fairfield apartment.

Officers Edward Bausch, Daniel Setterstrom and Craig Moore responded to 9 South Timber Hollow Drive at 11:49 a.m. on Friday at the request of a woman for officers to be “on stand by” related to a domestic dispute issue.

When Tyler Jones, 24, arrived at the Timber Hollow Apartment Homes complex, there was a confrontation between him and the police officers in the parking lot.

Jones produced a firearm during the confrontation, which led to the man being shot dead, police said. Police have not yet confirmed if the man was struck by bullets from one or multiple officers’ weapons.

Bausch, Setterstrom and Moore have been placed on administrative leave, which is department policy. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Fairfield Police Chief Steve Maynard told the Journal-News “the officers, although shaken by the traumatic incident, are doing well.” None of the officers were injured.

Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser said it’s his office’s policy to take all officer-involved shootings, as well as self-defense cases, to a grand jury.
