Police said the driver of a truck crashed into the Hamersville Village Board Of Public Affairs building after being shot by police.
The Brown County Coroner's office has confirmed the suspect's name as Albert Robert Clayburn of New Richmond but said he also went by Robert Albert Clayburn.
It started with a 911 call of a suspicious person. When police arrived, Clayburn took them on a chase that quickly turned deadly.
Beth Cox, a resident who lives in the area, said her family came home to see a car sitting across the street inside the city office building.
"Everything was roped off, blocked off, couldn't get to our house driveway or anything. Just found out it was an officer involved shooting," said Cox.
Buddy Cobern, a criminal investigator for the Brown County Prosecutor's Office said it's very rare for an incident like this to occur in Brown County.
Cobern said Clayburn was tearing down a shed at a friend's house. A neighbor called police after being concerned that Clayburn was on drugs.
When two Hamersville officers arrived at the scene, Clayburn took off on foot, got in his car and drove away.
Cobern said he took off, dragging one of the officers while driving towards the other who was standing in front of the vehicle.
Officers shot and killed Clayburn causing him to crash into the Hamersville Mayor's Office. Now, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations is involved to determine whether or not those shots were warranted.
Cobern says it's standard procedure for an outside agency to investigate an officer-involved shooting. According to Clayburn's criminal history, Clayburn was a registered sex offender and had several charges dating back to the early 1990s in Brown County.
The two officers involved have been put on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation. Police said this is the standard procedure for most departments.
Meanwhile, crews spent the day boarding up the Hamersville government building. It's still undecided where the office employees will be working while their building is being repaired.
