Two Cincinnati police officers have been cleared in the March 12 shooting that saw one officer shot in the “crotch” area and the suspect also wounded by gunfire.

Cincinnati PD officers Kenneth Grubbs and William Keupper were responding to a domestic violence call and approaching an apartment building through the courtyard when 37-year-old Damion McRae approached them and instantly pulled out a Kel-Tec Sub-2000 rifle and opened fire on Grubbs.

Grubbs and Keupper returned fire, hitting McRae 4 or 5 times. Even after being shot initially, McRae can be seen reaching for another gun, which was found at the scene

“It really was an act of God that saved these two cops,” prosecutor Joe Deters said. “If (McRae’s) gun hadn’t jammed, we’d be going to funerals.”

McRae will be charged with attempted murder, two counts of felonious assault, three weapons charges and one more for assault.
