The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office has been appointed as Special Prosecutor in the investigation of the officer involved shooting of 28-year- old,Brian Garber, of Lexington.The Richland County Prosecutor's Office requested that a special prosecutor be appointed due to conflict of interest in the matter.

Garber was shot and killed by Richland County Sheriff's deputies on March 16, after they responded to a domestic violence call. His wife said he sent her text messages stating he had a gun.

Garber was shot in an upstairs bedroom of his parents home at 3400 Mill Run Road in Lexington. No gun was found on Garber.

Garber's family, friends and local residents recently held a protest in downtown Mansfield in front of the Richland County Courthouse seeking justice for Brian.

The results of Garber's autopsy have been completed. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation submitted their findings from their investigation to the Richland County Prosecutor's Office.

A second protest seeking justice for Brian will be held on Sept. 11 outside the courthouse.
