Investigation Into Tiffin Police Shooting Wraps Up

10/24/17 – 5:35 A.M.

The Seneca County prosecutors office says police were in the right when they used lethal force against a stabbing suspect earlier this year. The Review-Times reports Ohio BCI recently finished their investigation into the May 9 incident in Tiffin.

The incident happened around 2 p.m. when Tiffin Police went to 92 North Tecumseh Trail to assist a Seneca County Sheriff’s deputy investigating a stabbing report. 34-year-old Scott Bloomfield shot the deputy, and Tiffin officers returned fire.

Investigators say Bloomfield tried to forcibly remove his ex from her car earlier in the day. About 30 minutes later officers responded to the Tecumseh Trail address after Bloomfield barged into the home and threatened to shoot a man. He ended up stabbing the man he was threatening before police arrived.
