On March 24 at about 6:45 a.m. police were called to a house on the 1000 block of N. Fulton Avenue, where they found Reno Joseph Owens Jr., age 39, holding what police described as a large butcher knife on a four-year-old girl and one-year-old boy, both of whom were relatives. Others in the house allegedly told police that Owens was homeless and had stayed the night, but was on drugs. A SWAT team arrived and shot Owens to death at about 7:45. Police said Officer Zachary Wein, the 14-year veteran who fired the shot, was put on routine administrative duty following the shooting. The SWAT team reportedly had body cameras running during the incident.
