In The Region:

The U.S. attorney in Columbus has asked the FBI to investigate the recent shooting death of 22-year-old John Crawford III.

Police in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek shot Crawford on Aug. 5 inside a local Walmart. Beavercreek police say Crawford was carrying an air rifle. The state’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation is now investigating.

Gov. John Kasich addressed the incident during a campaign stop in Beavercreek today.

"It's important we get to the bottom of this," Kasich says. "It's important that justice is done. The local folks have asked the attorney general to be involved and to investigate. BCI has been involved in that and I think it's important we move quickly."

Protests during the last week have made connections between this incident and the shooting of black teen Michael Brown, which has spurred massive protest in Ferguson, Mo.

Walmart released a video taping of the shooting to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who showed four minutes of it to the attorney for the family, who maintains the shooting was unjustified.
