The Bob Evans on Olentangy River Road was robbed over the weekend, resulting in the death of the suspect at the hands of an officer.

According to Columbus Police per 10TV, 34-year-old Joshua James Brown entered the back office of the restaurant around 7:30am Saturday wearing a hockey mask and armed with a handgun.

He reportedly demanded money from the manager, and hit her over the head with his gun as she tried to open the safe.

After several minutes, Brown exited out a back door without any cash, and was shot by Columbus Officer Jeffrey Miller, a 15-year veteran of the police force.

Brown was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Per protocol, Miller is on administrative leave pending an investigation into his actions in this shooting.

The Bob Evans manager was released from the hospital Saturday after being treated for minor injuries.

Police are still investigating whether or not the suspect had any previous connection to the restaurant, according to NBC4i.

10TV reports Brown's criminal record includes eight years in prison on a drug and weapons conviction from 2005, and a harassment with a bodily substance conviction from 2014 that allegedly stemmed from him spitting on officers after an OVI arrest.

According to court records and a report from his onetime employer, former 10TV meteorologist Mike Davis will plead guilty to the child pornography charges against him.

In his trial, scheduled for January 30, Davis is expected to plead guilty to four counts of pandering sexually-oriented matter involving a minor.

Davis is accused of uploading more than 15,000 images of suspected child pornography using a Yahoo email address. He was arrested on September 5 after the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) was tipped off to the alleged activities.

The indictment against him alleges that since 2012, Davis regularly downloaded and emailed to himself videos and images depicting young children engaging in sexual activity.

Davis originally pleaded not guilty to all charges in October 2019. Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said no plea deal has been offered in the case and his office will seek jail time for Davis.

Several dogs are sick and a few have even died in a case being investigated by Columbus Humane as a possible poisoning attack in North Linden.

Gypsy was the registered support animal of Hannah Broadway, reports NBC4i. A Facebook post that Broadway was tagged it revealed Gypsy was discovered in a pool of her own blood, having suffered organ ruptures. She ultimately died from internal bleeding.

Broadway then posted an update of her own, saying she is "still at a loss for words as to what happened."

But, before Gypsy or any of the other dogs got sick, an anonymous person made threats to another pet owner in the area.

Broadway's neighbor Elaine Putnam received a letter in the mail with no return address, threatening to give her dog "a couple rat poison meatballs" if she didn't get her dog to stop barking.

Putnam believes the person who sent the letter is also the person targeting other local animals.

The Franklin County Animal Care and Control anticipates more dogs in the area to show signs of being possibly poisoned. They advise dog owners to survey the yard before taking them out to use the bathroom.

Samples from the effected dogs are currently being tested to confirm or deny poisoning.

Columbus Humane is asking that anyone with any information come forward.
