Man accused in shooting of father, Ohio deputy indicted


MASON, Ohio (AP) — A man accused of shooting and injuring his father and an Ohio sheriff’s deputy has been indicted on charges including attempted aggravated murder and attempted murder.

Warren’ County’s prosecutor says a grand jury on Monday indicted 19-year-old Mohammed Abdou Laghaoui. Prosecutor David Fornshell says charges against the Warren County man also include felonious assault and tampering with evidence.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Laghaoui.

Authorities say Deputy Katie Barnes was shot in the abdomen while responding to a domestic situation at an apartment complex. She’s expected to recover. The suspect’s father was shot in the hand.

Authorities haven’t found the AK-47 assault rifle they believe Laghaouri used in the shooting. But Fornshell says a shot fired from the weapon entered a child’s bedroom in a neighboring apartment.
