Dayton Ohio Police: Officer shot in head and continues to protect and serve...

Amazing body cam video of this entire event..... watch video....


DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF) -- Dayton Police Interim Chief Matt Carper identified both the suspect and the officer who were injured in a shooting Tuesday night.

Carper provided details about the incident that lead to the exchange of gunfire about 7:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at 609 Ingram Ave.

The interim chief said Dayton Police were initially called to a Dollar General store on South Gettysburg Avenue about a counterfeit bill being passed.
Officer Thadeu Holloway, an 8-year veteran with the Dayton Police Department, investigated the incident and determined the suspect's address. Holloway arrived at that address and confronted a man as he got out of his cruiser.

That man, identified by Carper as Antwayne Deon Lowe, 39, of Dayton initially refused Holloway's commands and then -- as can be seen in body camera video shown today during a news conference -- Lowe swung at Holloway before running away. Holloway deployed his taser, striking Lowe in the back. Lowe fell to the ground and as Holloway was ordering Lowe to put his hands behind his back, Lowe is seen pulling a handgun and firing at Holloway.

Holloway was struck once, with the round tearing his left temporal artery. Holloway then returned fire, discharging five rounds. Multiple rounds struck Lowe, Carper said.
