MADISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WCMH) – A man was arrested Thursday morning after he was found asleep in his car with two handguns near the school where four people were injured in a shooting on Monday.
According to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, 23-year-old Brian Miller was found in his car at 5670 West Alexandria Road in Madison Township around 7am Thursday morning. He was approximately 1200 feet from Madison School District property.
Investigators said he had two handguns and a box of ammunition in the car with him.
“We do not know what his intentions were at this time, but we are not taking any chances what-so-ever. There is no evidence linking the suspect to the Madison School District, but it is being actively investigated. We are not ruling anything out. He was removed promptly from the area. The guns and ammunition were confiscated and he is in custody, where he needs to be,” said Sheriff Jones.
Miller is charged with improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, both misdemeanors.
