Trotwood police arrested and questioned Grissom, then 22, following the Aug. 16, 2016, shooting of 32-year-old D’juan Norvell outside the Sesame Club Apartments off West Third Street in Trotwood.


Police said at the time they believed the motive in the shooting was a robbery arising from an illegal drug transaction between Grissom and Norvell. However, Grissom has never been charged in Norvell’s death.
