DPD mourns the passing of a fellow Ohio law enforcement officer. Girard, Ohio Police Officer Justin Leo’s watch ended on 10/21/2017. To honor Officer Leo, our officers are wearing mourning bands over their badges this week until services have concluded. On Saturday, October 21st, officers from the Girard Police Department were dispatched to a residence in reference to a domestic situation involving a firearm. During the encounter, a male pulled a gun and shot Officer Leo. Patrolman Justin Leo, 31 years of age and a 5 year veteran of the Girard Police Department, was transported to the hospital but later succumbed to his injuries and died just before midnight. Our thoughts go out to the Girard Police Department and Officer Leo's family. #brotherhood #officerleo #girardohio #valor
