Two Willard police officers have been assigned to administrative duties after a Toledo woman was shot in the foot during a drug raid last month. A part-time Greenwich officer who also responded to the scene remains on active duty.

Willard Police Detective Jeremy Draper and Officer Brian Slone are handling administrative duties pending the results of the investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI).

Chief Mark Holden requested BCI handle the probe of the Dec. 19 incident at 631 Pleasant St., Willard, where Erica Devlin, 19, of Toledo, was shot in the foot and a pitbull dog was shot.

"They're still working; they're just not working patrol," Chief Mark Holden said. "They were the only ones in our department (who fired their guns)."

Part-time Greenwich Police Officer Sean Nolen also responded and fired his gun.

A story with more details about the shooting and subsequent investigation was published in Friday's Reflector.
