Akron Police Department Concludes Internal Investigation

Akron, Ohio, Nov. 28, 2023 – The Akron Police Department has concluded their internal investigation of the 8 officers involved in the shooting death of Akron resident Jayland Walker, which occurred on June 27, 2022. Chief Mylett has issued his executive summary which can be read in full here.

 

Prior to the internal investigation, the Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation separately and independently conducted the criminal investigation of the incident and turned their report over to the Ohio Attorney General. That evidence can be found here. This information was presented to a Summit County Special Grand Jury in April of 2023, and the grand jury declined to indict the officers for any crimes. Watch the Attorney General’s press conference on the matter here.

 

Due to pending litigation against the city, there is no further information or comment at this time.
