TOLEDO, Ohio— Authorities in Ohio say an officer shot and killed a man wanted in the slaying of his grandmother in the Detroit area after he grabbed an officer’s stun gun inside Toledo’s police headquarters.

Toledo’s police chief says 23-year-old Damon Barstad of Warren, Michigan, was being let out of a holding cell Thursday when he rushed at several officers.

The chief says an officer fired one shot at Barstad after he grabbed the stun gun during a struggle.

Barstad had been arrested early Thursday at a motel in Toledo.

Warren police say Barstad was wanted in the stabbing death of his 68-year-old grandmother. Her body was found Wednesday night in in the garage of her home, just outside Detroit.
