COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Personnel records show consistently good work habits by the deputy who fatally shot a teenage boy during a scuffle outside an Ohio juvenile courtroom.

The files show Franklin County Sheriff's Deputy Richard Scarborough has met or exceeded expectations for dealing with demanding situations since his hiring 10 years ago.

A note from his most recent evaluation in 2016 says Scarborough "does not get out of control."

The file released Monday through an open records request says Scarborough was on paid administrative leave from Thursday until Monday.

Authorities say Scarborough fatally shot 16-year-old Joseph Haynes after an "altercation" broke out when he was escorting the boy and his mother from a juvenile courtroom Wednesday.

Scarborough previously worked for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
