The 23-year-old man taken into custody is likely to be charged with aggravated murder

Duty Death: Bill Brewer - [Pierce Township, Ohio]

End of Service: 02/03/2019

By Associated Press

BATAVIA, Ohio  — A sheriff's deputy was shot and killed during a 12-hour standoff at an apartment complex in Ohio that left another deputy wounded and a suspect in custody, authorities said Sunday.

Capt. Jeff Sellars of the Clermont County Sheriff's Office said officers responded about 7 p.m. Saturday to the Royal Oaks Apartments in Pierce Township, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Cincinnati, following a 911 call from a man who said he believed someone was inside of his residence.

Authorities say the caller then said that he was armed and eventually told the dispatcher that he was suicidal.

But it was unclear from authorities' statements whether the caller was referring to himself or to the person he said was inside his home. It was also unclear whether the suspect himself made the call.

Authorities found only one person in the home.

The 23-year-old man taken into custody is likely to be charged with aggravated murder, according to a spokesman for Ohio's attorney general.

Spokesman David O'Neil said Sunday he couldn't confirm where the suspect was being held or whether any charges had been filed.

The Clermont County Sheriff's Office said Detective Bill Brewer died from his wounds. O'Neil says the other deputy, Lt. Nick DeRose, was treated for a gunshot wound in the ankle and released from a hospital.

"Deputy Brewer gave his life attempting to help a person who was admittedly suicidal," Sheriff Steve Leahy said in the release. "This will forever change the atmosphere of the Clermont County Sheriff's Office."

Authorities have said that the investigation is ongoing.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said in a later release that Brewer's "valor is now recorded for all time, written in blood."

"We mourn and we will remember," Yost said.
