Company helps New Carlisle journalist shot by deputy get a camera back in his hands
NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – A New Carlisle journalist who was shot by a deputy now has a camera back in his hands.
Andy Grimm had stopped to check out a traffic stop on North Main Street September 4 and was going to grab his camera and tripod out of the car when two shots were fired.
Grimm had his camera confiscated as evidence in the case. He told FOX 45 he isn’t sure when he’ll get it back, or even if it still works.
As a photographer, Grimm needs a camera to do his daily work, so Cannon Professional Services set him up with a professional camera and some lenses so he can get back to his job.
“I mean, just to be able to have that to get back out and do something on my own again,” Grimm said, “well, not technically on my own; I still need driven around. But just to be able to have something like I had before, you know, it’s going to help tremendously.”
Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations is still investigating the shooting, and the deputy involved is on administrative leave.
