MONROE — A Monroe Police Department officer shot a 22-year-old Dayton man, who was fleeing police, Saturday night at the Cincinnati Premium Outlets.

Jamarcus Levon Brown is facing multiple charges, including assault on a police officer, obstructing official business and failure to comply with police, after he fled from a police investigation Saturday.

A Monroe police officer was investigating Brown, who has a felony warrant out for his arrest in Montgomery county, for a possible theft at the mall, according to a press release from the Monroe Police Department.
Police were dispatched the outlet malls just before 6 p.m. Saturday on reports of theft. Roughly 30 minutes into Police Officer Chad Caudill’s investigation of Brown, the suspect fled into the mall’s parking lot on foot, according to a police statement.

Brown, in an attempt to evade police, got into a car and tried to drive away. Caudill, who was in pursuit of Brown, ended up on the hood of Brown’s car. Caudill fired shots through the windshield of Brown’s car as the suspect continued to accelerate his car.

At least one bullet struck Brown’s leg and he was taken to Atrium Medical Center by ambulance. Brown was treated and released from the hospital.

He is being held on a warrant arrest at Warren County Jail.

The officer, a five-year veteran of the Monroe Police Department, was not injured, according to police reports.

The Cincinnati Premium Outlets opened , from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., as normal according to a security officer working at the mall.

At around 9 a.m. mall employees appeared to be headed into work as normal. No police remained at the scene but a security officer in a vehicle was stationed around the area where last night’s shooting took place.

The Monroe Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Middletown Police all responded to the scene after shots were fired.

Premium Outlet officials directed all inquires about Saturday’s incident to the Monroe Police Department.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Monroe Police Department are still investigating Saturday’s incident, according to a report.
