Cincinnati Police Officers, in the midst of a 30-day trial for body cameras, recorded an officer involved fatal shooting Sunday, helping to back up the story told by police and witnesses.
At about 6:45 p.m. Sunday officers went to 379 Rosemont Avenue in West Price Hill for a report of shots fired. That's where they found 37-year old Christopher Mitchell with a gun to his head. Reportedly he had threatened suicide earlier in the day and pulled the trigger of another gun he held to his head, but it didn't go off. Friends say he had a history of depression and substance abuse.

“There’s about $520 million in need and about $260 million in capital available, and that capital is going to be deployed not just in Ohio but throughout the Midwest and potentially across the country," says McIlwraith.
The Hamilton County Democratic Party is getting better these days at something they used to struggle with – recruiting candidates to run for judgeships.
On Nov. 4, we will see if they are getting any better at actually electing them.
