Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies are still working without body cameras, even though a plan to purchase them was approved earlier this year.

Cincinnati Police Officers, in the midst of a 30-day trial for body cameras, recorded an officer involved fatal shooting Sunday, helping to back up the story told by police and witnesses.

At about 6:45 p.m. Sunday officers went to 379 Rosemont Avenue in West Price Hill for a report of shots fired. That's where they found 37-year oldĀ  Christopher Mitchell with a gun to his head. Reportedly he had threatened suicide earlier in the day and pulled the trigger of another gun he held to his head, but it didn't go off. Friends say he had a history of depression and substance abuse.
