Ohio mayor orders probe after woman alleges police raided wrong house and injured her baby

The mayor Elyria, Ohio, has opened an investigation after a woman alleged police officers who raided her home had the wrong address and deployed flash bang devices that sent her 1-year-old to the hospital with burns.

However, police have offered a conflicting account of what happened on Jan. 10, saying they had executed a search warrant at the correct address and the child did not "sustain any apparent, visible injuries."

Elyria Mayor Kevin A. Brubaker called the accusations “serious and disturbing,” announcing on Saturday “a complete review of the incident.” He said body camera footage from the incident will be released later Tuesday.

The Elyria Police Department had obtained a court-authorized search warrant for a residence in the 300 block of Parmely Avenue as part of criminal investigation, police said in a news release Friday.


The baby has chemical pneumonitis, which is inflammation of the lung tissue caused by chemicals---from the flash bang smoke. Stupid cops.
