CLAY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Multiple charges have been filed against a man accused of opening fire on officers in Clay Township.

The Montgomery Count Prosecutor's Office said it will be presenting charges of Felonious Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a Police Office, Discharge of a Firearm On or Near a Prohibited Premises and Failure to Comply with an Order or Signal of a Police Officer against Aaron Mitchell, 40, to a Grand Jury.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Mitchell first fired shots at the Clay Township Police Department just before 1 p.m. on Friday. After authorities say Mitchell opened fire, he led officers on a chase which ended in the 300 block of Diamond Mill Road.
