Shots Fired at Mulligans – Update (Piqua Police Department Media Release Number: 17MR10)

Posted on: August 14th, 2017 No Comments

 

* On August 11, 1970, Officer Jan Mulder was shot and killed in this same building, known as the Fort Piqua Hotel at the time. Piqua remembers his sacrifice.

Threats related to the case that started as a disturbance with shots fired at 110 W. High St., Piqua, on 8/10/17 at 11:09 pm, are now resolved. As previously reported, Eduardo A. Fitch, 42, of Troy, was taken into custody at 303 E. North Street at approximately 1:49 am this morning, when officer located a suspect vehicle in the area and saw suspects matching a description from the scene of the disturbance. He is currently incarcerated at the Miami County Jail on several felonies and misdemeanor offenses related to this incident. The weapon believed to have been used was recovered inside 303 E. North St.

Based on witness statements obtained at the original scene, another white male subject was transported to the Piqua Police station for questioning. Based on investigation that included comparison of this subject’s statement and video from the scene, it was determined he did not possess a weapon or directly participate in a crime. He was released after questioning.

Investigation also revealed that a subject that was already in the bar when Fitch arrived and then discharged a handgun into the air had also brandished a handgun and fired a shot into the air. This was apparently in response to Fitch’s shot. A surveillance picture of this subject was published by our department this afternoon. Within an hour of the photos being published, this subject turned himself into the police department

This subject was identified as Joshua R. Stannard, 26, of Fairborn. He was cooperative and surrendered the weapon believed to have been used last night. Stannard was arrested and incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on a warrant from the State of Colorado for a weapons violation. Additional local charges are pending additional investigation.

Three subjects were originally sought as suspects in criminal activity based on eyewitness statements, and three weapons were believed to be involved. Investigation revealed only two suspects engaged in criminal activity. Both of these suspects are now in jail, and both weapons fired in downtown Piqua last night have been recovered. As usual, Piqua citizens engaged with law enforcement for safe resolution of a crime. Other local law enforcement agencies involved included the Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Covington Police Department and Troy Police Department. We are very grateful for their assistance.
