Officer Ben Campbell is scheduled to receive the Congressional Badge of Bravery next week for his heroics in stopping the mass murderer in Copley Township August of 2011.
Campbell was the first officer on the scene of the mass shooting and without waiting for backup Campbell encountered the shooter. After ordering the gunman to drop his weapon, the shooter refused, pointing his weapon at Officer Campbell. Campbell then shot and killed the man.
U.S. State Senator Sherrod Brown will present the medal to Campbell Monday in Copley.
