Police Officer Kevin Crayon was killed after being dragged by a vehicle being driven by a juvenile.

Officer Crayon noticed the 12-year-old boy operating the vehicle in a parking lot of a convenience store and approached it. As he reached inside the vehicle in an attempt to take the keys out of the ignition, the suspect suddenly drove away, and dragged Officer Crayon alongside the vehicle.

In an attempt to save his own life, Officer Crayon shot the suspect once in the chest before being freed from the vehicle. However, Officer Crayon sustained massive head injuries and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The juvenile drove the vehicle to his parents' house where he collapsed and died.

Officer Crayon had served with the Cincinnati Police Division for four years. He is survived by three teenage children.
