MANSFIELD, OH - The four officers who were involved in a shooting that occurred on Christmas Eve on South Mulberry Street have been cleared to return to full active duty, according to the office of Police Chief Ken Coontz.

The officers had been placed on administrative leave due to department policy after the incident at the home.

Police responded to a distress call from that location where the caller stated there was an intoxicated person slitting their wrist.

The caller said the suspect, Michael T. Sherbourne, was still in possession of a knife and was trying to kill himself.

Upon arrival, police officers confronted the suspect and attempted to use a taser that had no effect on him.

During the confrontation, the suspect was shot.

Officers then provided medical first aid and the suspect was taken to OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

The Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation will be conducting the investigation into the shooting.
