UPDATE@3:49 p.m. 9/5

Andrew Grimm, the shooting victim, has been released from the hospital, he told WHIO TV.

He said he was discharged about 2:30 p.m. and is feeling sore. 

UPDATE @ 3:20 p.m.

The Clark County deputing involved in the shooting has been identified as Jake Shaw, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said in a release Tuesday afternoon.  

The incident occurred when Shaw initiated a traffic stop Monday night. During traffic stop, a man later identified as Andrew Grimm arrived on the scene and was injured after being shot, the release said. 

Shaw has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of that investigation and will attend critical incident debriefing, according to the press release. 

UPDATE@2:18 p.m.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office has asked the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations to head up the investigation into the shooting, officials said Tuesday. 

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the goal is to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. It’s not unusual for the AG's office to head up an investigation surrounding an officer-involved shooting, DeWine said, noting that this will be regular investigation.

Any internal affairs investigation would obviously be handled by Clark County Sheriff's Office, he said. 

DeWine also confirmed that a photographer with New Carlisle News shot while he was out taking pictures, as this news organization has reported. However, the attorney general wouldn't go into details of the case because he said key interviews have yet to be conducted.

He said it would be up to the Clark County Sheriff's Office to release the name of the deputy involved, and to confirm that deputy's employment status, DeWine said, adding that the investigation will be carried out in an impartial way.

UPDATE @ 11:07 a.m.

The news photographer who appears to have been shot by a Clark County deputy is recovering, according to a Facebook post. 

The New Carlisle News is reporting that its staff photographer Andy Grimm was shot when a deputy mistook his camera for a weapon. His father, Dale Grimm, is the publisher of the newspaper.

"I talked with Andy a little while ago," the New Carlisle News posted on its site. "He said he is very sore but otherwise is doing fine. He said they expect to be releasing him sometime tomorrow. On behalf of our entire family, we thank you for all of the kind messages." 

Dale Grimm declined to comment.

The post also asks people not to "mean mouth" the deputy who shot Andy Grimm.

"Andy said he doesn't want (him) to lose his job over this," the post says. 

Clark County Sheriff Deb Burchett also took to Facebook in the aftermath of the shooting. 

“As sheriff of this county, I would truly appreciate if the community would just send prayers for Andy Grimm and my deputy,” she says on Facebook. 

State Rep. Kyle Koehler, R-Springfield, reiterated Grimm’s wishes in a Facebook post of his own. 

“Let’s support Andy with our prayers and by doing what he asks by not tearing down law enforcement,” Koehler's post says.
