Investigators find 107 bullet holes in Yellow Springs house

The house was the scene of a standoff with police last week that left one man dead.


Investigators have recovered about 191 shell casings from inside a Yellow Springs home and identified at least 107 bullet holes left from weapons fired inside the house where a resident died following a standoff with police, according to a information released by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office on Tuesday.

Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations investigators have also collected a Glock 22 handgun, a 12-gauge shotgun, two AK 47-style rifles, and a pistol as evidence.

The BCI is investigating the death of Paul E. Schenck, 42, at the request of the Yellow Spring Police Chief and the Greene County Sheriff. A Yellow Springs police officer was dispatched to 280 North High Street in response to a 9-1-1 call related to an assault around 11 p.m. on July 30. The officer called for backup after shots were fired. Law enforcement officers from agencies around the region responded to officer’s call for help.

Two sheriff’s cruisers and one SWAT vehicle were damaged by shots fired by Schenck, according to the attorney general’s office.

Two Greene County Sheriff’s deputies fired their weapons during the standoff, which lasted about six hours, but it is unknown who shot Schenck.

The deputies remain on paid administrative leave while waiting for answers concerning Schenck’s death.

It could take up to eight weeks before a final autopsy report with toxicology results is complete, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

Meanwhile, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office Deadly Force Review Board will review the circumstances of the case to make sure the deputies adhered to the law enforcement agency’s policies, said Gene Fischer, the Greene County Sheriff.

The firearm review board is made up of four or five people who are appointed by the sheriff.

Fischer was unable to say how long the deputies would remain on paid administrative leave.

“Any time you’re involved in a shoot, it’s not an easy thing for anybody,” he said. “There’s certain procedures to make sure they’re ready to come back to work.”
