FAIRLAWN, Ohio (WOIO) - The aftermath of a shooting incident in October at the Summit Mall was all caught on police-issued body cameras, recently obtained by 19 News.

The man, a licensed CCW holder, told police he got a restraining order against one of the suspects after getting his car windows broken.

“I didn’t want to fight, that’s a week old,” the man said. “I just left church and stuff. I’m trying to be better.”

He continued to tell police one of the suspects punched him while another suspect punched the woman he was with.

The man said he went to pull out his gun to defend himself but he was tackled to the ground.

The man told police the suspects then ran from the chaotic scene.

Both victims cooperated with police in the investigation and police took the man’s gun into evidence.
