Guernsey County Sheriff investigating officer-involved shooting after pursuit

CAMBRIDGE — The Guernsey County Sheriff Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting, which started with a pursuit on Friday night.

Sheriff Jeffrey D. Paden said shortly before 9:30 pm Friday his deputies were requested to assist in a vehicle pursuit on US 22 near Ohio 800 in Northeastern Guernsey County. Paden said his Communications Center was notified officers from the Barnesville Police Department were in pursuit of a vehicle being operated by a female wanted on an active arrest warrant for Assault on a Police Officer from a prior incident involving Barnesville Officers.

The driver, a 47-year-old woman from Barnesville, failed to stop after officers identified her driving in Barnesville. The vehicle pursuit was initiated at that time and continued into Guernsey County on US 22, when deputies and troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol became involved at the request of Barnesville Officers.
