Search Warrants Reveal Details of Officer-Involved Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Search warrants are giving us a closer look at what happened right before an Albemarle County police officer shot and killed a man in Afton.

Early Saturday morning an Albemarle County officer shot and killed 21-year-old Gregory Rosson Jr., of Crozet outside a home in the 9,000 block of Rockfish Gap Turnpike in Afton.

According to the warrants, an Albemarle County police officer responded to a domestic dispute and found Rosson beating a woman.

The search warrant states, "An Albemarle County police officer responded to a domestic and upon arrival observed a male assaulting a female.  The officer gave the male commands to stop but he did not stop and the officer subsequently shot the male to stop the threat."  Police have said that Rosson ran toward the officer who shot him.

The warrants also show what police say they found inside Rosson's home and vehicle.  Officers did not find a gun in his home or vehicle but they did find four bullet casings.

The identity of the officer has not been released, however, according to the warrants the officer has been on the force for more than 24 years.

We are waiting for the official autopsy results. The medical examiner's office in Richmond says those results will be released any day.
