Ross County Dead After Accidental Shooting By Police

Authorities say a Ross County woman was killed in an accidental shooting by a law-enforcement officer during a drug raid. A prosecutor in Ross County said 35-year-old Krystal Barrows, was accidentally shot in the head Wednesday night after officers entered a home near Chillicothe. Prosecutors say it wasn't clear whether the gunfire was the result of a weapon malfunction or user error. The county sheriff's office wouldn't answer questions about the shooting.
