TRENDING STORY: 2 dogs shot in Springfield while in their backyard
Grimm says in the suit he wasn’t a threat to anyone the night he was shot by Clark County Deputy Jacob Shaw. Body camera footage obtained by the Springfield News-Sun appears to show Shaw was conducting a traffic stop when he fired at Grimm.
The lawsuit also alleges Grimm’s wife, Melanie Grimm and KBA News LLC, which publishes the New Carlisle News, have suffered due to the shooting.
“Plantiff KBA News, LLC asserts loss of business profits as local law enforcement agencies have retaliated against the business in response to the events of Sept. 4,” the lawsuit says.

Shaw returned back to work in the jail in October.
