Investigators with the Harrison County Sheriff's Department handed over an initial report to the prosecutors office regarding the shooting involving the Lumberport Police chief.
Prosecuting Attorney Joe Shaffer says he received the preliminary report from detectives. Since getting it, he has asked for more information. It will be a couple weeks before he can respond.
Lumberport Police Chief Jeff Beach shot 18-year-old Scott Sorge three times earlier this month outside of the Lumberport Fire Department. Before the shooting, Sorge supposedly showed a knife during a confrontation.
Beach is on paid administrative leave. Sorge is still in Ruby Memorial Hospital.
