The report gives a detailed account of the incident including for the first time disclosing that Ware was shot three times. Officer Uriah Hamilton was cleared in the shooting death of Ware.

The report also makes significant mention of the Video “UNSIGNED Y-Town” from Midwest Entertainment, an Ypsilanti-based production company, as evidence in the report. Ware is alleged to have appeared in the video cooking crack cocaine and singing.

The first community meeting about the shooting was held on February 7th. Video of that meeting is available at YpsiNews.com. While a second community meeting has been discussed, there are no current plans for a meeting to discuss the report.
