Police Officer Shot in Danville

DANVILLE - A Danville police officer was shot and killed while on duty overnight.

The situation began shortly before midnight when dispatchers sent an officer to check on the officer at his last known location after the officer failed to respond despite multiple attempts to contact him. 

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the officer's hat and some blood were found, but the officer and his cruiser were missing. The officer was later found shot outside the city municipal building, where department headquarters is located. His marked Danville Police Department cruiser was reportedly stolen. A statewide BOLO was issued on the car, which was later recovered. Paramedics were called to the Danville Municipal Building. It is unknown whether the officer was yet deceased when he was found.

Shortly afterward, firefighters were called to a nearby residence, located at 6 E. Washington St. and ordered to not approach when they arrived. Shortly afterward, a statewide BOLO on the cruiser was issued.

Approximately two hours later, after a short chase across fields and parking lots near the park in Danville, a male was taken into custody. A female was later taken into custody at or near a residence. She was reported to have been hiding under a truck. She was released.

The male who was arrested, Herschel Jones, 32, of Danville, is charged with tampering with evidence. No murder charges have been filed.

Knox County Common Pleas and Mount Vernon Municipal Court records show that Jones has an extensive criminal history, with numerous past charges ranging from theft to assault. Jones is a convicted felon, having pled guilty in 2011 to receiving stolen property and illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called to the scene.  Investigators are now working to determine what events led to the shooting.

The officer's name has not yet been officially released.

Out of respect for the officer's family, MVOhio.net will not be releasing the officer's name until that information is released to the media through proper channels.
