The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations was called to a crime scene in Ravenna Township Wednesday morning following an officer-involved incident.
According to officials, the incident happened after police deputies showed up at the home of Cody Osco, attempting to arrest him on outstanding warrants for Failure to Appear, Intimidation of a Crime Victim, Public Indecency, Criminal Damaging and Trespass in a Habitation.
Upon entrance, deputies located Osco in the basement of the home. While attempting to take him into custody, Osco allegedly pulled a knife on deputies and attempted to lunge at the officers.
That is when one deputy, who has not been identified, discharged his firearm at the suspect. Osco was injured and deputies provided first aid until EMS arrived and transported him to University Hospital Portage Medical Center.
Osco was later transferred to University Hospital's Cleveland Medical Center and is currently receiving treatment.
Pending the ongoing investigation, the four officers involved in the incident have been placed on paid leave.
