SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - The man accused of ambushing and shooting to death two New York City police officers before killing himself had charges in southwest Ohio in 2009.

Online court records show that 28-eight-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley was indicted on a robbery charge in Clark County in June 2009. The charge was dismissed several days before Brinsley was scheduled to go to trial on Sept. 3, 2009.

The Springfield News Sun (https://bit.ly/1AuS24t ) reports that Brinsley’s address was initially listed as “at large” but was later changed to Union City, Georgia. Brinsley’s attorney in the Ohio case could not be reached for comment on Sunday.

Police say Brinsley on Saturday approached the passenger window of a marked New York City police car and opened fire. He then went into a subway station and killed himself.
