Alameri, was found lying in a ravine with his clothes soaked with mud following the shooting. 

He was unarmed when he was shot by Hudson police officer Ryan Doran, the Ohio Attorney General's Office confirmed on Monday. 

In the dash cam video released by the Hudson police department, Doran could be heard telling Alameri to get down multiple times before shots were fired.

Doran used a .40 caliber pistol to shoot Alameri, Tuesday's report said. The gun holds 14 rounds. Nine were left in the firearm after the shooting. 

The shooting happened after Alameri sideswiped another vehicle and flipped his own on the Ohio Turnpike.

Police said he then climbed out of his car and fled the scene before the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrived.

Nearly one hour later, Doran found Alameri in a nearby wooded area off of Hudson-Aurora Road. The City of Hudson said a struggle ensued, shots were fired and Alameri was killed. 

Doran was placed on paid administrative leave following the shooting.

Alameri was a citizen of the United Arab Emirates and was in Cleveland on a student visa, according to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which is the lead agency on the case. His Facebook page indicates he began law school at the university in June.
