Cincinnati Police chief Jeffery Blackwell believes a fatal officer-involved shooting in Northside was within departmental policy on use of force. 

Blackwell says Officer Justin Moore, who was part of the most recent lateral transfer recruit classes, and training Officer Doris Scott were searching for Quandavier Hicks, a suspect in a menacing complaint.  He says the two officers went to 1751 Chase Avenue and were knocking on doors around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday.
